What Does a Support Coordinator Do in the NDIS?

Navigating the intricacies of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can be a complex task for participants. This is where the role of a Support Coordinator becomes invaluable. A Support Coordinator is a pivotal ally in the journey of an NDIS participant, ensuring they maximise the benefits of their NDIS plan.

Understanding the Role of a Support Coordinator

A Support Coordinator is essentially a guide and a planner for participants of the NDIS. They possess in-depth knowledge of the NDIS and are responsible for helping participants understand and implement their NDIS plans. Their core responsibilities include:

  • Exploring the NDIS: They help participants understand the various facets of their NDIS plan, interpreting how the funded supports can best meet their needs.
  • Connecting with Services: They assist participants in locating and connecting with NDIS service providers, as well as community and mainstream services relevant to their goals.
  • Tailoring Support Networks: They focus on building a network that reflects the participant’s choices and control over their supports.
  • Crisis Management: Support Coordinators also play a role in mitigating and resolving points of crisis, providing a critical touchpoint during challenging times.
  • Capacity Building: They empower participants to understand their plan, help with plan reviews, and equip them with skills to eventually manage their plan independently, if that’s their goal.

Crafting Individualised NDIS Support Strategies

A crucial aspect of a Support Coordinator’s job is to personalise strategies and supports that align with a participant’s NDIS goals. They work hand-in-hand with participants to:

  • Develop and design a personalised support strategy based on the participant’s unique needs and aspirations.
  • Ensure the participant is matched with providers that best suit their preferences, whether it be for therapy, community engagement, or daily living aids.
  • Assist participants in understanding their funding and how to utilise it optimally to fulfil their goals.

Support Coordinators are instrumental in preparing for and guiding participants through NDIS plan reviews. They aid by:

  • Tracking the progress of the participant and offering evidence for the effectiveness of the supports.
  • Suggesting adjustments or additional supports that may be required based on changes in the participant’s situation or goals.
  • Providing expertise in aligning the changing needs of participants with suitable services and supports.

We are so pleased with the care Dad has been receiving from Kinder Caring, especially from Aster. She has shown professionalism and dedication. We appreciate the company’s flexibility in accommodating our requests, like Aster wearing a mask and gloves. The temporary rail adjustments and the proactive approach in ensuring the best care for Dad is commendable. Thank you, Kinder Caring.

Kinder Caring has been exceptional in their service. They provided a wonderful carer who is exceptional at what she does. Not only did they promptly get my quote approved, but they also took care of my window cleaning needs and organized transportation for my medical appointments. I couldn’t be happier!

There was so much more to caring for Dad than we ever thought. Kinder Caring provided everything we needed to support us; they became part of our family… they made a difficult time so much easier for us.

A huge thank you to all the nurses at Kinder Caring. Having your expertise, caring attitude and ongoing advice meant we did not have to place Dad into a nursing home or send him to hospital and therefore his last days spent with Mum and the family were very special for us all.
