What is Support Coordination?

Support Coordination provides you with a person or an agency to help you implement your NDIS plan and:

  • explain what you can spend money on in each category
  • engage service providers
  • set up service agreements
  • help resolve any issues for the support you require.

A Support Coordinator is not responsible for rostering staff or paying for services, but they can help you understand how rostering and budgeting work, and support you to learn those skills for yourself. Your Support Coordinator can also assist you with your second year’s plan.

This is the physical act of implementing your plan to meet your goals.  The financial management of your plan (or paying the bills) is called plan management. Find out more here >>

How do I get Support Coordination in my NDIS Plan?

You can request Support Coordination even if you are self-managed, agency managed, or plan managed, but you must do it in your NDIS planning meeting. To be granted Support Coordination will mean you have complexities that require more than just connecting to supports.
