Starting your plan

What is Support Coordination?

You can request ‘support coordination’ to be included in your plan. Support coordination is a capacity building support to implement all supports in your plan, including informal, mainstream, community and funded supports. This may include supporting you to:

  • assess a number of mainstream, community, informal and provider options
  • choose preferred options or providers
  • negotiate services to be provided and their prices, develop service agreements and create service bookings with preferred providers
  • negotiate services and prices as part of any quotable supports

Support coordinators may also assist you to:

  • get ready for your plan review by helping you to:
    • assess whether you achieved your goals and got value for money for your plan
    • identify solutions to problems experienced in implementing the plan
    • consider new goals
  • decide on what actions to take to achieve goals in relation to exploring housing options and life transition planning
