NDIS Support Coordination
If your NDIS plan has funds allocated towards support co-ordination, we can help you put your plan into action and make sure you're getting the most out of your funding. We'll help you understand what services and funds are available to you and connect you with your community and appropriate providers. We have a unique understanding of mental health in the context of culture based on our extensive experience in both the psycho social area and the CALD space, and we're dedicated to providing accessible, consistent and personalised support.
Some of the things we can support you with include:
- looking through your options for service providers
- negotiating services and prices on your behalf
- developing service agreements and booking services
- linking to services including housing, education, transport, health, and more
- preparing for your plan review
- making sure you have choice and control
We're here to help you navigate this complex space and ensure you're getting support that aligns with your unique needs.
We have two NDIS Support Coordinators on the Gold Coast.
