Support Coordination

by Alison Dunn

If you, or someone you know, have been funded for support coordination under the NDIS, our large and diverse Support Co-ordination team can help. We assist you to implement a plan including a wide range of services, all centred on individual needs and goals.

It could be anything, from connecting with the right service providers to rehabilitation, getting a drivers’ licence or exploring housing options. We give completely independent advice on the best way forward and a referral is not required 

Where are we?

Our Support Coordination team is based in Five Dock in Sydney’s Inner West. Many of our clients live or work in our area  – we also have participants from Lugarno to West Pennant Hills.
