How Can Geelong Disability Services Help You?.

As experienced Support Coordinators we are able to assist you:

  • To unpack and understand your NDIS budget, so you can allocate your current funding to different services or providers. This will ensure the services you purchase meet your needs.
  • To become a more confident “purchaser” so you implement your plan in a way that best meets your individual needs and preferences.
  • To locate and select service providers who are able to deliver services in accordance with your individual needs
  • To set up Service Agreements with providers, so you understand exactly what services you are purchasing, the cost of these services and how this will be deducted from your budget.
  • To build capacity and learn to exercise greater control over the way your services are provided.
  • To coordinate the different services and activities provided through the NDIS, mainstream services and in the community.
  • Prepare for NDIS plan reviews at scheduled reviews or at other times should your support needs change.
