Complimentary NDIS Pre-Planning | Afea Care Services

Support from the NDIS experts

The NDIS provides thousands of people with a disability with choice and control over the funds they receive. With independence comes a lot of information to take in, and it can help to have an expert on your side to help navigate it all.

Our Support Coordinators can assist you in preparing for planning meetings so you know what to ask for, and have a better chance of being approved for the funding you are requesting. This is a complimentary service called Pre-Planning.

What Pre-Planning Involves

Our Support Coordinators can help people with a disability:

  • Produce reports
  • Gather evidence
  • Navigate the NDIS
  • Identify and articulate their goals
  • Follow up with the NDIA
  • Request a planning meeting
  • Understand the planning process

Preparing with your Support Coordinator

Most support budgets in NDIS plans will only be approved if the participant can provide evidence that they will benefit from the support, and it will help them achieve their goals.

Our Support Coordinators can help you prepare for your planning meeting and assist you through your NDIS journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can access funding for Support Coordination?

There are three main groups of participants who may receive assistance from a Support Coordinator:

  • Participants who have complex needs or a complex support environment
  • Participants who are experiencing a major life transition such as moving house, transition planning for ageing parents or transitioning from school
  • Participants with specific high-level risk in their lives such as behavioural challenges

Will this come out of my Core Supports budget?

If you are approved for Support Coordination, the funding will come out of the Capacity Building budget and will not take away from your Core Support or other budgets. The amount you are approved for will be determined by a planner based on your needs and circumstances

How much does Support Coordination cost?

The NDIS Price Guide lays out the maximum a Support Coordinator can charge per hour. It is important the note that a Support Coordinator will not be able to help you once the budget for this support has been exhausted. It is a good idea for your Support Coordinator to leave some hours at the end of your NDIS Plan in order to help with your plan review

How do I apply for Support Coordination funding?

You should request Support Coordination funding in your first Plan in the initial meeting with an NDIS Planner. If this is not your first NDIS Plan and you are going through a transition in life you can request an early plan review

What is the difference between Support Coordination and Plan Management?

Although both supports help to manage and implement NDIS Plans, Support Coordination is a ‘capacity building’ support which is for the purpose of helping participants design and implement services in their plan so they can live a better life. 

As your abilities to implement and manage your Plan increases, funding for Support Coordination is likely to decrease. However, a Plan Managers role is to manage and monitor Plan funding and submit claims to the NDIA on behalf of your providers, and funding will remain the same from Plan to Plan
