The importance of finding the right NDIS support coordinator
Everyone talks about finding the right match with a support worker, but no one is talking about finding your the right fit for a support coordinator.
This is as just as important, and here are our reasons why;
- The nature of a support coordinators role means that they can learn some really personal information about you and your family. You want to make sure that you feel comfortable with the coordinator, that they have the right experience and personality to actively listen and, gain an understanding into your life, and your needs, so that they can best support you.
- The NDIS is a complex system, due to the consistently inconsistent messages from everywhere. The right support coordinator is on your side, they will navigate this system with you, and they will have your back if things get rough.
- The right support coordinator for you, will know how to speak with you, how you like to communicate, and understand how to best support you, so that you are not left wondering what they are doing with your funding, or where things are up to.
- The right support coordinator will work with you to put appropriate supports in place. They know how life changing it can be to have the right supports in place.
- The right support coordinator will make safe referrals. What does this mean? This means they will link you with reputable services whose values align with yours, that measure outcomes, and that put you at the centre of their support.
You want to feel OK to pick up the phone and call them, you want to know that they are working with you, and for you, not for the needs of their organisation.
You have the right to chose the support coordinator that suits you. If you are unhappy, change coordinators.
This is your plan, your life.
