NDIS and Self-Funded Disability Services in Regional SA

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australia-wide scheme established to assist those living with a lifelong disability to meet the reasonable and necessary costs of living life to their fullest potential.

The NDIS works with participants to assess their needs and goals. After a plan has been developed to meet the needs and goals of a participant, the NDIS will allocate funding to achieve these goals.

As an NDIS accredited provider with decades of experience in disability support, we will walk alongside you to deliver the personalised support you need to live independently and forge your own destiny.

NDIS Plan Management 

While the NDIS is crucial in supporting thousands of people across Australia, there’s no denying that it can be a daunting task to manage your own plan, or even to find a company you can trust to manage your NDIS plan.

Carers and Disability Link is a plan management provider, meaning that we will help NDIS participants manage their NDIS funds. We can help provide the support you need on your behalf, taking some stress out of funding and managing your own NDIS support.

NDIS Support Coordination 

Your NDIS plan should be attuned to your own unique needs. With NDIS support coordination, Carers and Disability Link are able to coordinate the support you receive so that you can participate in the community and achieve your personal goals. 

The level of support coordination you receive will depend upon your own needs and will be set out in your NDIS plan.

    Join a Disability Social Group

    Living with disability can be challenging. As a result, joining a support network can be a fantastic way to meet people with similar experiences, share stories, and help each other.

    While it might be daunting at first to join a support group, they can really help provide the support you need. The shared nature of a support service also means that you can share your own experiences with others, helping others get through potentially difficult times.

    What Is NDIS Support Coordination?

    Support Coordination provides assistance to NDIS Participants to put in place the supports provided in their Plan.

    The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) defines support coordination as:

    ‘Assistance to strengthen participants’ abilities to coordinate and implement supports and participate more fully in the community’.

    Support Coordination can come in different levels of intensity based on each participant’s need.
    If approved by the NDIA, your level of Support Coordination will be noted in your NDIS Plan.

    Support coordination can include:

    • linking participants to providers
    • coordinating a range of supports both funded and mainstream
    • building on informal supports
    • resolving points of crisis
    • parenting training
    • developing participant resilience in their own network and community
    • increasing the participant’s ability to manage their own NDIS Plan in the future
    • linking participants to providers
    • coordinating a range of supports both funded and mainstream
    • building on informal supports
    • resolving points of crisis
    • parenting training
    • developing participant resilience in their own network and community
    • increasing the participant’s ability to manage their own NDIS Plan in the future

    If you would like this type of assistance please ensure you ask for this at the time of your NDIS planning meeting.

    If you need more information about the NDIS and how it can help you meet your personal goals, don’t hesitate to reach out and contact us either by phone or email today.


    The NDIS is a crucial service that ensures that people across Australia are supported and receive the care and resources they need to continue living as fulfilling a life as possible. That being said, while the NDIS is vital, there’s no denying that it can be a difficult service to fully understand at first.

    As a result, we’ve compiled a list of some common NDIS FAQs to help clear up some potential confusion surrounding the service.
