When you’re working with an NDIS Support Coordinator, it’s essential to understand the services they can provide.
Your Support Coordinator can help you with things like organising your plan, ensuring your budget is followed and helping with plan reviews.
What happens at plan reviews? Your Support Coordinator will work with you and your NDIS planner to review your plan every 12 months. They’ll ensure all the services in your plan are still suitable for you and meet your needs.
But that’s not all they can do! Your Support Coordinator can also communicate with service providers and help you access the proper support and services.
