You are here: Home / Support Options / Coordination of Supports
Did you know that in short term changes by the NDIA, Support Coordination will be available to all NDIS participants and their families. This ensures they have the support they need to manage the impact of COVID-19.
Even if you do not have Support Coordination in your current plan, this support can now be accessed from the core supports funding category.
Our friendly, professional team of Support Coordinators have the capacity to provide this great support.
If you, or anyone you know, would like to know more about our Support Coordinators and our Support Coordination service, please contact us.
NDIS Support Coordinators connect participants with an NDIS plan and connect them with other supports and services in the community. Support Coordinators compliment your life and put your NDIS plans into action!
Your Support Coordinator will assist you to:
Your first meeting with Ability Options will be with your Engagement Manager. We will walk through your NDIS plan and assess how we can best support you in achieving your goals. We will encourage you to share information about yourself i.e., your name, NDIS number, disability, and people most important in your life, so we can best understand what you would like to achieve.
During this meeting, a Service Agreement will be developed. This agreement outlines how you and Ability Options will work together. If you decide that Ability Options is your chosen provider for Coordination of Supports, you will be required to sign the Service Agreement. Your Engagement Manager will match you with the best possible Support Coordinator to fulfill your needs, goals, and aspirations. Your Support Coordinator will then contact you, and you will start your NDIS Journey!
To begin this stage, your now matched Support Coordinator will contact you and coordinate a meeting. Your circle of supports are encouraged to attend this meeting, to help complete and compile a full picture of your life.
During this meeting, we will discuss how to meet your NDIS goals, explain your funded support categories and outline the do's and don’ts of Support Coordination. Together, we will develop a unique, tailored, and comprehensive/universal program that reflects your specific needs, desires and aspirations. Therefore, enabling us to achieve the goals in your plan to the best of our ability.
After this planning meeting, we will complete a one-page profile, so we can personalise your service and match you with the right support staff and services for you.
Your Support Coordinator will meet with you to determine and act on how your goals are being achieved and will assist you in best using the NDIS through connecting and organising informal, mainstream, and funded supports in service delivery. We walk alongside you in your NDIS journey.
Once your supports and services are established, together we will monitor your goals, needs and aspirations.
We will keep records about how goals are being achieved so there is good information available for you to use when you review your plan with the NDIA. This usually happens once a year.
As part of the process of working with you, we aim to develop and strengthen your skills, capacity and confidence in taking control of your NDIS plan. Once you are comfortable with coordinating your NDIS plan, you have the choice to independently manage your own plan.
We will help you develop skills and confidence to take control of your NDIS plan. We aim to:
This is an individual process and everyone learns these skills in their own time.
