Support Coordination is for participants whose disabilities result in higher levels of complexity and risk. The focus of Support Coordination is on cutting the red tape that may accompany more complex plans—in other words, it simplifies a participant’s situation in order to make it easier to deliver necessary supports. This way the participant can concentrate on building capacity and developing skills to increase his or her independence. The participant may also receive a customised intervention plan drawn up by disability support workers.
The NDIS defines three levels of Support Coordination:
- Level 1—Support connection—helps participants connect with informal community supports so that they can maximise their NDIS plans.
- Level 2—Support coordination—helps participants understand and utilise their NDIS plans.
- Level 3—Specialist support coordination—designed for participants who require specialist support due to higher levels of complexity. Involves assistance from a specialist support coordinator.
