Why have a Support Coordinator in Illawarra, Wollongong?

Having a good support coordinator in Illawarra, Wollongong, is similar to having an NDIS coach. A Support Coordinators job is to help participants to understand the NDIS, develop goals and to create a plan to achieve your goals. This may mean assisting you to budget out the funding in your plan, to connect with providers and make plans to help you to best manage any risks in your life that may stop you from reaching your goals.

Support Coordinators can help NDIS participants in a wide variety of ways. We are also known as “Disability Intermediaries” This means that we cross the gaps between the NDIS and other services like the Department of Health or Department of Education; where other providers are not allowed to. This is to help people to make the most of the support that is available to them.

 

This is really important as the NDIS does not fund every aspect of the life of a person with a disability. Some things like income support are the responsibility of Centrelink, where we often help people to apply for the Disability Support Pension (DSP).  The NDIS not paying for something shouldn’t stop a good Support Coordinator from looking for other options to help people to achieve their goals. We can point people in the right direction when applying for grants, connect people in with community groups, help people to find housing and if the funding in a person’s NDIS plan isn’t right; we can help to gather evidence to have it reviewed to get better outcomes and put some more options on the table. So, if you are looking for a support coordinator in Nowra, apart from the mentioned regions, get in touch with us today.
