The Summer Foundation have published Support Coordination – A changing landscape, a report that looks at where support coordination stands in the NDIS. The document is written by Kate Fulton and Libby Ellis and aims to:

- Provide practitioners with an overview of how the support coordination function is designed within the NDIS
- Reflect on the development of the support market, including the types of providers in the market, the ideal skills base of support coordinators and market investments needed to support this emerging workforce
