Support Coordination

Support Coordination helps people find and organise the services they need to meet their NDIS goals because it can be tricky to do this on your own. A Support Coordinator is a person who can help you make your NDIS Plan work. Having a Support Coordinator can make it much easier to find and use the things you have NDIS funding for and to connect with your community.
Araluen’s Support Coordinators can help you:
  • Understand the NDIS and your Plan
  • Know what supports you can get with your NDIS money
  • Find the right services and supports for you
  • Let you choose who will support you and how they will do it
  • Make sure you get good value for your money
  • Help you become better able to manage your supports by yourself
  • Assist you to work with the services and people you choose
  • Help you prepare for your NDIS Plan review
