A key role of a support coordinator is to broker supports and services in line with a participants wishes and their plan budget.
How support coordinators do this will vary depending on a participant’s needs and circumstances. This generally involves helping a participant:
- plan and coordinate their supports
- establish and maintain their supports.
Support coordinators should help a participant design the right mix of supports and services to help them pursue their goals. This should include NDIS-funded, informal, community and mainstream supports.
A participant’s supports should be tailored to their circumstances, needs and preferences in line with the funding available in their plan.
Support coordinators should help the participant:
- identify their support preferences based on their goals
- design a schedule of services which is in line with expected plan spend, and will help participants to pursue their goals and meet their needs
- identify providers who can meet the participant's needs
- explore and trial different support options
- evaluate the effectiveness of different support options in meeting the participant’s needs and helping the participant to pursue their goals
- navigate and work with multiple providers.
