What does Support Coordination with Maple look like?
How Do I Nominate Maple for Support Coordination?
Support Coordination Support Levels
Working with you and your support network, we will assist you to explore your options, educate you on how to navigate the NDIS, and find creative ways to utilise your Plan Funding.
Support Coordination is a service that identifies, coordinates, and enables access to supports that meet a person’s specific needs and preferences by working with them and on their behalf. According to the NDIS, there are three levels of Support Coordination that can be included in your support plan depending on your needs and the level of your disability:
To increase your ability to connect with informal, community, and other funded supports encouraging you to make full use out of your plan and achieve your goals.
Working with you to identify your needs and help you understand, implement, and utilise your plan. You can work with a Support Coordinator to get the most out of your supports and increase your functional capabilities, maintain relationships, manage the delivery of services, live more independently, and participate in the community.
Specialist Support Coordination
A higher level of Support Coordination for people whose circumstances are more complex and require specialist support. A Specialist Support Coordinator will manage specific challenges in your environment.
Am I Eligible for Support Coordination?
Reasons you may be eligible for Support Coordination due to your disability include communication difficulties, language barriers, complex support needs, or if your social situation or support network is limited. People who are unable to make their own informed choices may also be eligible.
If you need guidance or have any questions regarding your Support Coordination needs, feel free to reach out to our team at Maple who are always happy to help.
What Level Of Support Coordination Will I Receive?
To assess the level of need of a participant, your planner will use the “reasonable and necessary” criteria of the NDIS, with the ranges listed above used as guidelines. These ranges will give your Support Coordinator an idea of how much support you need, but if you feel the level of support is lacking, you can request for reclassification.
What Does an NDIS Support Coordinator Do?
Your Support Coordinator helps you use your NDIS plan in the most effective way possible for you. They work together with you to find and coordinate service providers that will help you reach your goals and build skills to live more independently and stay connected in the community. Other things your Support Coordinator can help you with include, but are not limited to, the following:
