What is Support Coordination?

Finding the support you need at United For Care

Living with a disability can be very challenging. But, for many Australians, government support is available. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was put in place by the Australian federal government to help disabled people in every aspect of their lives.

It’s important to give those with disabilities more autonomy and independence when trying to shape their own support and care policies, and many receive help from a specialist support coordinator for NDIS.

What is an Support Coordinator?

A support coordinator is someone who can use their knowledge and expertise to help work with those who have disabilities and want to take their lives forward in the best possible way. These specialists are trained in NDIS, and they understand every part of the process, which helps when working out how you can get the support you need.

How can a Support Coordinator help You?

Finding the right help is not always easy. There is a lot of information to go through, and it can be a bit overwhelming to deal with on your own. Getting help from professionals who know what they are doing is a tremendous resource.

With a knowledgeable coordinator by your side, you will find it much easier to make the most of the support available to you. They can teach you how to access and use the online portal, so you have direct access to your information and funding, as well as helping you to prepare for the next NDIS meeting.
