The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
Carers NT is now delivering NDIS Support Coordination Services
Support Coordination is an important component of helping people effectively get the most out of their NDIS plan. When a NDIS plan is approved, many clients will work with a Support Coordinator to help them put their plan into action. This is referred to as 'plan implementation' and helps people connect with the supports they need in their NDIS plan, maintain the Plan and help them to achieve their goals.
Your Carers NT Support Coordinator will partner with you to assist you get your NDIS plan started. We will work with you to:
• Build your own skills and confidence to coordinate your own supports
• Assist you in developing and maintaining relationships
• Support you to access health, education and other services
• Take part in your community and find a job or an educational pathway if you want
• Select providers of your choice for the supports you are funded for
• Make sure those providers meet the goals you have set
At Carers NT we feel that we are ideally placed to provide Support Coordination services and have a great team in place to do so. We are very excited by the opportunities that the NDIS can bring with it and are actively building our capacity and service offerings to provide carers and their families the best quality NDIS support that we can.
The NDIA Price Guide is arranged into 15 categories that align to the purpose of the funded supports and the NDIS Outcomes Framework.
Broadly they are grouped by 3 main support purposes
A support that enables a participant to complete activities of daily living and enables them to work towards their goals and meet their objectives
An investment, such as assistive technologies, equipment and home or vehicle modifications, funding for capital costs (e.g. to pay for Specialist Disability Accommodation).
- CAPACITY BUILDING
A support that enables a participant to build their independence and skills.
