Your Role ...
As a Support Coordinator, you'll work with our customers, their families and carers to coordinate all aspects of their NDIS plan and help them to get the most out of their NDIS journey. You'll find and connect them with service providers in their area that are best suited to their situation. You'll help them understand what's in their NDIS plan, set up service agreements with their providers, report outcomes to the NDIS, prepare their plan reviews and support them when issues arise with their service providers.
