What NDIS support coordination services are available?
An NDIS plan provides an array of options in regards to support services available for you. The support coordinators at St Jude’s will help you figure out which are the best options for you, and how you can make the most of your NDIS funding. Our clients are always encouraged to make their own decisions about which service is right for them. Ultimately, the support coordinator will connect the client to the appropriate service providers, and then make sure that the client remains on track to achieving their desired outcomes outlined in their NDIS plan.
The NDIS support coordinators in Brisbane at St. Jude’s provide three levels of support; support connection, support coordination and specialist support coordination.
We provide all types of support coordination services, including:
Why is support coordination beneficial?
Support coordination in Brisbane enables clients to get the most beneficial outcome from their NDIS funding. By having a thorough understanding of their NDIS plan, clients are empowered to make decisions regarding utilising services which are going to be of most benefit to them, so they receive the right support and assistance.
St Jude’s works closely with locally-based QLD service providers, which include mainstream, community, informal and funded. Our clients receive an array of options and are able to exercise choice and control when it comes to choosing which services they wish to work with. Once connected to your services, your designated Queensland support coordinator at St Jude’s will assist with the implementation of your NDIS plan, including initial negotiations and setting service agreements with service providers.
If in the case there is a change in your circumstances (e.g. key life transitions), your support coordinator will help you respond to these changes and adjust accordingly, in alignment with direction from your NDIS plan.
When it comes time for your NDIS plan review, your designated support coordinator will always be available in person to support you at your plan review meeting.
