Support Coordination

Posted on 11 August 2017

Once you have an approved plan, it is time to put it into action.

For most participants, your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or Early Childhood Partner will guide you through this process. If you are in an area that was a Trial Site, a majority of participants will transition to work directly with LACs to review their plan. LACs will provide a single point of contact for NDIS participants and help you to develop, implement and get the most out of your plan.

Some people require a little extra support to get started and will have funding called Support Coordination included in their plan. This will be discussed at your planning conversation.

Support Coordination is a capacity building support designed to help you find and connect to the right supports to make sure you are getting the most out of your individual plan.
