Every organisation we speak to is interested in Support Coordination. The NDIS price seems reasonable and with an estimated spend of $770 million at full rollout, it’s clear that the opportunity is significant.
This workshop will explore the detail behind the Coordination support types and what it takes to deliver and market a standout service. Drawing on the experience of some of the sector's leading Coordinators, we will outline the explore the emerging best practice in:
- Building capacity in participants to self direct and manage their own supports
- Facilitating NDIS market navigation
- Service agreements, referrals and connections
- Making the most of the flexibility offered by the NDIS
- Reporting to the NDIA and preparing participants for future Plans
- Specialist support coordination
- Exploring and linking participants to informal, mainstream and community supports
- Marketing your Support Coordination service to NDIS participants and families

Lani spent the first 15 years of her career as a speech pathologist working in disability & health. In 2006 she transitioned into research, going on to complete a PhD in evidence-based practice and knowledge translation. She joined the Market & Sector division of the National Disability Insurance Agency soon after its launch in 2013, providing advice about how evidence relates to NDIS legislation and decision-making and other aspects relating to implementation of the scheme. Lani now works as a consultant, workshop facilitator, researcher and university lecturer. She is an Adjunct Senior Lecturer with the Faculty of Health Sciences, Disability and Community Research Group at the University of Sydney.
Libby Ellis is the Director of InCharge. She focuses on what it takes for people with disability to take front and centre stage of their own lives. Through this experience she noticed there was a gap between people’s desires for better and knowing how to get it. So InCharge acts like a social broker – connecting NDIS participants with other people, networks, opportunities, roles in their community, information and most importantly, their own capacity - in order to become genuine contributing citizens. This is the great opportunity for people with the NDIS.
Prior to this Libby worked for services to create genuine opportunities for personalised support, and for advocacy organisations. She brings 20 years experience supporting her brother with significant intellectual disability and autism to share his home with people without disability, define his own needs and direct his support to meet these needs. Her family’s partnership with a national service provider was the catalyst to the development of their self-managed services.
