NDIS Support Coordination Service in Perth,WA : NDIS Support Coordination: All Your Queries Answered!

NDIS Support Coordination is designed to enable the participants to make the most out of the NDIS by coordinating various services, funded, mainstream and informal ones. But it’s also a support which often confuses the participants.

In this blog, we have answered a few of the most frequently asked questions by the participants and their families.

1) What does a support coordinator do?

A support coordinator is a qualified individual who helps the participant implement the NDIS supports included in the plan and coordinates across the system with providers and service deliveries to ensure that everything is in place for you. They will help you understand the NDIS plan and make informed choices regarding the support you receive. It is funded in the capacity building budget.

2) What do you mean by capacity building?

Capacity building refers to strengthening your skills and developing your capabilities to improve independence; it could be anything from helping your education to building skills. It is also a support category in the NDIS budget that funds you to do activities to help you achieve your NDIS goals.

3) Can you change your support coordinator and work without a support coordinator?

Yes, participants can choose to change support coordinators at any time. However, according to the service agreement between you and the support coordinator, they will be served with notice before that. Some participants manage their plans without the assistance of a coordinator. If you think you understand your plan enough and are confident to coordinate it, NDIS welcomes you.

4) What are the different levels of Support Coordination?

Currently, there are three levels to support coordination service, which is allowed to the participant according to their needs.

1) Support Connection 2) Coordination of Supports 3) Specialist Support Coordination

If you are looking for a support coordinator who will help you navigate the NDIS smoothly and negotiate with the best-suited service providers, contact Aastha Community Services. Aastha’s support Coordinators ensure that the participants can maintain their choice and control throughout the support.

DIS Psychosocial Recovery Coach and Its Impact on Existing Support Coordinator Role.

Aastha Community Services

The Disability Reform Council of Australia approved a series of initiatives back in October 2019 to improve the accessibility and outcomes of NDIS services for people with psychosocial disabilities. Hence, in an endeavour towards focusing on recovery and mental health support, NDIS has introduced a new support item to help those participants primarily diagnosed with a psychosocial disability. Now they can receive psychosocial support from an

NDIS funded recovery coach who has mental health knowledge. Participants can choose between a learned experience recovery coach or a lived experience recovery coach. The former is someone with learned knowledge and training in mental health while the latter can draw on knowledge based on their mental health illness and recovery. To know more about the qualifications and competencies of a recovery coach, you can approach a registered NDIS provider. The key thing to remember is that funding for a recovery coach is available to all participants with a primary psychosocial disability, unlike

NDIS support coordination which is an overall role that may not always be included in your plan. People who are already availing of the services of a support coordinator can choose to continue with that. They can even balance their hours between a support coordinator and a recovery coach if their situation demands it.

The NDIS psychosocial support is still in its infancy. Hence you can expect a lot of changes in the way Psychosocial Recovery Coaches are structured in future. Work is underway at NDIA to better define support coordination as well. Aastha, an NDIS registered provider in WA, can ensure that the best and most capable team is at your service. We provide NDIS psychosocial support and NDIS support coordination across Perth, Joondalup, Mirrabooka, Morley, Osborne Park, Victoria Park, Canningvale, Maddington, Armadale, Cockburn Central, Kwinana, Rockingham, and Mandurah.
