Having a choice of service providers is important in making sure that you get the support you need – as well as how and when you need it. But we know that the reality of managing multiple service providers and coordinating these supports effectively to fit with your lifestyle can be quite challenging.
Support Coordination is designed to reduce the complexities that come with negotiating formal (service providers etc.), informal (your family and friends) and government supports (NDIA). Support Coordination aims to assist to provide assistance to increase your ability to coordinate and choose the supports that you need to achieve your individual goals and to participate fully in life and in the community.
