What is Specialist Support Coordination?

Improving the lives of participants with complex needs by navigating and coordinating multiple services and providers, and achieving their goals and aspirations.

NDIS Specialist Support Coordination helps participants with complex needs to navigate and coordinate multiple services and providers, and achieve their goals and aspirations under the NDIS.

  • Assessing and planning of NDIS participants’ needs, goals, and aspirations, with a focus on those with complex needs.
  • Coordinating and connecting multiple services and providers, including mainstream, community, and informal supports, to achieve the participant’s goals.
  • Providing ongoing support, guidance, and advocacy to help participants navigate the NDIS system and access the appropriate services and supports to meet their complex needs.
