Coordination of Supports
Our Coordination of Supports team support people with disability, families and carers to:
- Feel in control of their supports
- Be more informed about all available options
- Maximise supports
- Feel more connected
- Receive assistance with making decisions about the future
- Find support in the local community
- Increase confidence
Our Coordination of Supports team assist customers navigating the disability service system by providing information, advice and support when decisions need to be made.
We will make sure customers understand their National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan and then connect customers with the people and supports that will enable them to live life as they choose and reach their potential.
We also focus on building confidence and skills so customers can control their funding.
What we can offer
Our qualified, accredited and committed team can provide two different levels of support for customers.
Support Coordination is suitable if customers receive multiple or complex supports from a range of providers. It has an increased focus on addressing barriers to participation in accessing services and resolving those issues.
Once you are receiving services, we monitor progress, resolving any further arising issues and suggesting adjustment of ongoing support when required.
Our team has experience in crisis resolution and will work to increase individual’s resilience so they can reach their potential.

Specialist Support Coordination is time limited and focuses on overcoming significant barriers preventing access to service delivery. We can assist if customers are at a high risk level by reducing complexities within the support environment.
