Empowering you on your NDIS journey
Funded by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA)
What is Support Service Coordination?
SASI provides Support Coordination to assist people with disability and their family or support network to understand and journey through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). We are committed to supporting you to achieve your goals, enhance your abilities and empower you to understand and implement your NDIS plan effectively.
A Support Coordinator is your very own individual NDIS assistant. Our job is to take the stress out of using your NDIS plan so that you can focus on achieving the goals and outcomes you choose. Support Coordination assists you to understand and implement your NDIS plan. Our team can help you to find the right service providers for your needs, manage crisis situations, explore new activities, and coordinate all your supports, including mainstream, informal, community and funded supports.
If your NDIS plan includes Coordination of Supports, then our experienced Support Coordinators are available to support you and your family.
The type of Support Coordination you are funded for will be outlined in your NDIS plan.
The three levels of Support Coordination are:
1. SUPPORT CONNECTION
Short-term assistance to implement your NDIS plan, including identifying service
providers and negotiating Service Agreements.
2. SUPPORT COORDINATION
Longer-term support to build your capacity to navigate the complexity of services and
supports you need from a range of providers.
3. SPECIALIST SUPPORT COORDINATION
Specialist Support Coordination when you have a more complex situation.
Who is eligible?
- Anyone who has been approved for NDIS funding can access our Support Service Coordinators.
