Frequently asked questions

Do I need Support Coordination?

Support Coordinators assist children, young people and their families to understand the contents of their NDIS plan and work out how to best utilise the funding to allow them to meet the NDIS goals.  If you would benefit from assistance in understanding the contents of your NDIS plan or connecting with paid supports, a Support Coordinator may be useful.

Do I qualify for this service?

Some NDIS Plans have Support Coordination included.  To see how we can support you, call us on 0451 262 865.

Where is Support Coordination funded in my plan?

Not all NDIS plans include funding for Support Coordination in the Capacity Building budget.  Until March 31, 2021 Support Coordination can be funded out of the Core Supports budget, if connecting to services has been made more difficult because of COVID-19.

How do I get Support Coordination in my NDIS plan?

If you have a current NDIS Plan that does not have Support Coordination funded within it and you are having difficulty organizing services that are funded in your plan and you think a Support Coordinator could assist you with this, you need to request a Plan Review to have this included.  Brighter Connections are happy to assist people in this situation free of charge.
