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

Sally is our resident NDIS wonderwoman (also fondly known as our ‘pocket rocket’). Don't be disarmed by her humour, she packs a punch with her huge NDIS knowledge, intellect and energy. Sally has diverse experience across financial services, human services, B2B, B2C, for profit and for purpose industries around the world. Sally is especially passionate marketing products, services, spaces and experiences for people with a disability.
Sally is a dynamic trainer and presenter, a Certified Practicing Marketer and lecturer in Marketing at the University of Newcastle. She is a Director of the Centre for Universal Design and a past member of the NSW Disability Council. Sally was also the CEO of a disability service provider during the Hunter NDIS trial. And, she finished her Masters at Harvard (did we mention she’s dynamic?). One of Sally's three daughters, Nicky, who passed away in 2018, was an NDIS participant for four years. Sally translates her personal and professional experience into a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for business.
FEEDBACK FOR DSC's SUPPORT COORDINATION forums
Don't just take our word for it. In our recent Support Coordination workshops we have had over 600 participants around Australia - here's what some of them had to say about the day:
The NDIA have made a very welcome change to their position on Support Coordinators in plan review meetings.
The NDIA has recently articulated its position on Support Coordinators attending plan review meetings, and you may not like what they have said. Evie discusses the implications and offers strategies for working within these guidelines.
Support Coordinators are critical to your organisation’s success. Sam Paior tell us how to make the most of the relationship with these people who matter.
Earlier this year, we wrote that we were disappointed to see that Peer Workers had been removed from the list of professions who could provide Support Coordination. But now, as Evie reports, that has all changed in the updated Guide to Suitability.
Bronwyn explores the Quality & Safeguarding Rules that will impact Support Coordination providers and practitioners.
We urge the NDIA to rethink their bizarre decision to remove Peer Workers from the list of professions able to deliver Support Coordination.
