Why get Support Coordination?
Support coordination is a valuable resource that is provided by the NDIS for participants, who the NDIS believe it is reasonable and necessary for the participant to have these supports.
It makes managing arrangements of personalised supports and services easier by working with a Support Coordinator to better understand your NDIS plan.
Therefore, unless the NDIS planner and Local Area Coordinator (LAC) believe that you need a support coordinator, it is important to realise that you need to request for this support.
How much do I have to pay?
The great thing to know about support coordination is that it is separately funded from your core budget so you don’t have to worry about paying for it and reducing your supports.
Payment for Support Coordinator like Help at Hand Support Services is in your plan. It is found under the category of “Coordination of Supports”.
The good thing is that these funds are only for support coordination and are not available for other supports. These are in addition to your other funding.
