Support Coordination in Mid North Coast NSW
Understand the detail and opportunity of NDIS Support Coordination and what it takes to deliver and market a best practice service.
Coffs Harbour: Wednesday 2 August
DATE & TIME
Wednesday 2 August
9:15am - 3:30pm
1 Vernon Road
Support Coordination is a critically important NDIS support. At full rollout, we estimate the NDIA will spend $770 million on Coordination of Supports. Yet with an estimated three quarters of a billion dollars projected to be spent on this support, guidance from the NDIA on what it should look like has been remarkably thin on the ground.
At DSC, we believe Support Coordination is one of the most important supports for facilitating the NDIS’ goals around choice and control for participants. That’s why we have investigated to find all the information we can about what best practice looks like and turned it into a training workshop for Support Coordinators and Support Coordinators to be.
This workshop uses theory and practice to explore the detail of what it takes to deliver and run a best practice service, including:
- The levels of Support Coordination: NDIS expectations of the roles and best practice
- Building confidence in working with the price guide and NDIS portal
- Understanding how informal, mainstream, community and funded supports can be used creatively to supporta person to reach specific goals
- The resources available to answer your own questions and develop your practice
