Support Coordination

What is Support Coordination?

Support Coordination is an NDIS funded support that is designed to support participants to make the most of their NDIS funds. Once a Plan has been approved, participants work with Support Coordinators to determine how their funds will be spent and to connect them with providers.
Support Coordination is about:
• Having conversations about what is possible with a person’s NDIS funds;
• Building capacity of the participant to exercise choice and control;
• Supporting participants to understand the NDIS and find providers that are best suited for them;

What are the different types of Support Coordination?


The Price Guide describes four types of Support Coordination:
