Support Coordination Melbourne
Sunrise2Sunrise provides support coordination in Melbourne. We understand that navigating the complexities of NDIS support coordination can be challenging.
That’s why we are here to offer our compassionate and professional NDIS specialist support coordination services.
What is Support Coordination?
Support coordination is a crucial service provided under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia. It aims to assist NDIS participants in effectively utilising their funding and achieving their goals.
Surnise2sunrise provides support coordinators for NDIS participants in Melbourne. Our support coordinators act as guides and advocates, helping participants navigate the complexities of the NDIS and connecting them with the appropriate services and supports.
Support coordination involves working closely with individuals with disabilities, their families, and support networks to understand their unique needs, goals, and aspirations.
The support coordinator collaborates with the participant to develop a personalised support plan that aligns with their objectives.
Our Role as a Support Coordinator
The responsibilities of Sunrise2Sunrise’s support coordinator are listed below.
