Meet Our Support Coordinators

Category: 

Our Burnie Brae NDIS Support Coordinators play an important role in assisting clients to ‘optimise’ their NDIS plan, ensuring clients receive the most from their funded supports. Exercising choice and control over the services and supports clients want and need is imperative to client wellbeing. Our support coordinators help clients do this by building their understanding of the NDIS as well as the supports and services available.

We work with clients to ensure a mix of supports are used to increase capacity to maintain relationships, manage service delivery tasks, live more independently and be included in the community. We also offer specialist support coordination – this is for clients with more complex needs who need specialist support.

For more information about NDIS support coordination at Burnie Brae please email ndis@ Burniebrae.org.au or phone 07 3624 2121.
