Support Coordination: Empowering Individuals with Disabilities

Support Coordination is a crucial aspect of empowering individuals with disabilities to lead fulfilling lives and access the services they need. It plays a pivotal role in bridging the gap between people with disabilities and the numerous support services available to them.


PHYSABILITY CAN OFFER LEVEL 1, 2 & 3 SUPPORT COORDINATION. Depending on the funding available in your NDIS plan.

What is Support Coordination?

Support Coordination is a service designed to assist individuals with disabilities and their families in navigating the complex landscape of the NDIS and understanding disability support services and resources available to them. It’s about connecting people to the right services, ensuring they receive appropriate support, and empowering them to make informed choices about their lives.

Support Coordinators work closely with individuals and their families to identify their unique needs, goals, and aspirations. They assess the available funding options, such as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and help plan how these funds can be best utilised to achieve the individual’s goals.

The Role of PhysAbility in Support Coordination

PhysAbility specialises in offering Support Coordination services to individuals with disabilities. Their approach is centred around the principles of empathy, empowerment, and inclusivity.

Connecting with Services: Navigating the disability support system can be overwhelming. PhysAbility’s Support Coordinators have in-depth knowledge of available services, providers, and resources. They help individuals access the services that best align with their goals and preferences.

Advocacy: PhysAbility takes on an advocacy role when necessary. They ensure that individuals receive the support they are entitled to under the NDIS or other relevant programs. This advocacy can include negotiating with service providers, appealing decisions, and ensuring that the individual’s rights are upheld.

Empowerment: One of the core values of PhysAbility is empowerment. They work collaboratively with individuals and their families, empowering them to make informed decisions about their lives and the services they receive.
