NDIS Support Coordination

Welcome to Early Links NDIS Support Coordination

NDIS support coordination helps you to achieve your NDIS goals by connecting you to different service providers, such as therapy services, community groups, and employment services. Our support coordinators have a wealth of experience and can help you understand how to get the most out of your NDIS plan.

What does a support coordinator do?

Our support coordinators assist you in understanding your NDIS plan, how to connect with service providers that will suit you and your needs, and explain what NDIS funding can be used for. We support you to achieve your NDIS goals.

We may link you to:

  • Therapies to assist you in reaching your goals
  • Support in the community
  • Help for domestic help or maintenance in the home
  • Local group activities that are of interest to you
  • Employment services
  • Housing Services
  • NDIS MyPlace Portal
Goals may look like:

  • Being more involved within the local community
  • Connecting to informal supports including neighbours, shops, and local transport
  • Being assisted with tasks of everyday living – grocery shopping and appointments
  • Building skills to live independently
  • Finding housing suitable to your needs
  • Working towards employment
  • Connecting to interest groups in your local area
  • Looking after your mental health and wellbeing
  • Having healthy relationships

Our support coordinators can communicate with you in the manner that best suits you and your circumstances via texts, phone calls, emails, video chats or in person.

Who can our support coordinators help?

Our support coordinators assist people who have NDIS plans with funding for a support coordinator. We aim to link you to a support coordinator with the knowledge and experience to understand you and your needs.

    Our support coordinators are highly qualified

    Our support coordinators come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some have lived experience, and others have family members with disabilities. We have worked within the disability sector in many areas, including community services, education, health, NDIS and housing.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        What does a support coordinator do?

        A support coordinator assists you to understand your NDIS plan, explains what the NDIS funding can be used for, and finds and connects you with service providers that will suit you and your needs. This will support you to achieve your NDIS goals.

        How do I find a support coordinator?

        You can ask your NDIS planner, local area coordinator (LAC), or ECEI partner to contact us on your behalf. You can give us a call at Early Links directly on 02 4934 3773 and ask for support coordinators. Your NDIS planner will nominate a support coordinator if you don’t know of any.

        Support coordinators are funded through your NDIS plan.

        Can my support coordinator make my decisions for me?
