The support coordinator plays a vital role within the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). It is important for people involved in an NDIS plan to consider having a support coordinator working alongside them, managing support services, and supporting them in their life. Think of a support coordinator as a kind of personal NDIS assistant. They are there to help you with your journey through the NDIS and work directly for you. The role of a support coordinator does not replace the functions of a career, parent, family member, or another support worker. Every person has a unique situation and will need additional assistance depending on their circumstances. Support coordinators are your first point of contact when submitting paperwork or addressing concerns you have about your NDIS plan.
