Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About NDIS Support Coordination:

What is NDIS support coordination and who is eligible?

NDIS support coordination is a service designed to assist participants in navigating their NDIS plans, accessing services, and achieving their goals. Eligibility is typically determined during the planning process with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) based on the complexity of a participant’s needs and their capacity to manage their plan independently.

How does support coordination help NDIS participants?

Support coordination provides invaluable assistance to NDIS participants by offering guidance, advocacy, and practical support to help them understand and implement their NDIS plans effectively. This includes identifying and connecting with service providers, understanding funding options, resolving issues or concerns, and building the skills necessary to self-manage their plan over time.

Can participants choose their support coordinator?

Yes, NDIS participants have the freedom to choose their support coordinator. They can select a support coordinator who they feel understands their needs, preferences, and goals. It’s essential to find a support coordinator who aligns with their values and can provide the level of support and guidance needed to navigate their NDIS journey successfully.

How does Stride Mental Health ensure personalised support for each participant?

At Stride Mental Health, we prioritise personalised support for every participant we work with. We start by taking the time to understand each individual’s unique circumstances, goals, and preferences. Our support coordinators then tailor their approach to meet the specific needs of each participant, offering one-on-one assistance, regular check-ins, and ongoing advocacy to ensure their NDIS journey is as smooth and successful as possible.

Navigating the NDIS journey can at times feel daunting, but with the right support, it becomes a path to empowerment and fulfilment. At Stride, we’re passionate about providing personalised support coordination services to help individuals with mental health challenges achieve their NDIS goals.
