CO-ORDINATION OF SUPPORTS
Plan implementation involves a series of activities to connect with, and maintain the supports outlined within the persons plan's Statement of Supports. These activities may include linking to supports and ensuring service delivery is of great quality and is helping the person meet their goals.
Support to implement the plan (known as support co-ordination) is the provision of assistance in one or more of the components of plan implementation.
Role of a funded coordinator of supports In relation to the NDIA’s definition of Support Coordination, the primary role of a Support Coordinator is to:
Support implementation of all supports in the plan, including informal, mainstream and community, as well as funded supports
Strengthen and enhance the participant’s abilities to coordinate supports and participate in the community
Ensure mainstream services meet their obligations (i.e. housing, education, justice, health)
Build the capacity of the participant to achieve greater independence to self-direct services and supports in the longer term
Provide the NDIA with reports on outcomes and success indicators within the agreed reporting frequency
