Support Coordination Academy Toolkit

The toolkit gives users a comprehensive system for delivering Support Coordination service, or the plan implementation part of the LAC role. The processes and tools work together to guide practice and empower participants.

Support Coordination Pathway: Maps and Processes

The Pathway details end-to-end activities across five stages:

1

Understand community, mainstream and funded supports

2

Connect with participants

3

Turn the NDIS Plan into an Action Plan

4

Link to Supports

5

Coach, Refine & Review

The Pathway is explained using a high level process map showing key elements across all stages. Each stage is then broken down further with its own detailed process map and detailed activity descriptions.

It’s an essential practice resource for providers and is supported by a number of powerful service delivery tools.
