Support Coordination

 

What is it?

Dianella Health's Support Coordinator will help you access the supports and services you want and need to live a fulfilling and happy life under the NDIS. 

 

How do I know if I need a Support Coordinator? 

Once the NDIS has confirmed you meet the access requirements, a planner will arrange to meet with you. Together, you will discuss your needs, goals, aspirations & the supports you currently receive. This may take more than one meeting,  you can bring someone with you for support. Using this information, your planner will then develop a plan of supports that best meets your needs & your goal.

 

What are the steps involved?

Once funds are available your plan is sent via DHHS to the Support Coordinator. Your Dianella Support Coordinator will set a meeting with you & provide you with information on what services are available & which organisations provide them, this is where the you choose which services & organisations you would like to engage with.

 

Your Support Coordinator will;

  • ensure services meet their obligations, 
  • review your plan if you feel its not meeting your needs or if your situation changes,
  • liaise with your support services,
  • liaise with NDIA,
  • review your plan annually,
  • strengthen & enhance your abilities to coordinate supports & participate in the community.                                                                                                                                               Top of Page
