Navigating the Process of Changing Support Coordinators

The journey of navigating the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) often involves forming a close relationship with your support coordinator. If you’re asking yourself, “can I change my NDIS support coordinator?” – the answer is yes! At New Growth Care Group, we understand the importance of having the right support by your side. 

Whether due to evolving needs, relocation, or simply seeking a better fit, changing your NDIS support coordinator can be a necessary step. This guide will walk you through why you might consider a change and how New Growth Care Group can help ensure a smooth transition.

Recognising The Need To Change Your Support Coordinator

Sometimes, the need to change your support coordinator becomes clear when certain factors impact your support experience negatively. Here are common reasons you might consider changing to a new NDIS support coordinator:

  1. Lack of Compatibility: If communication barriers arise or if the approach of your current support coordinator doesn’t align with your needs, a change might be beneficial.Sometimes, the working relationship between a participant and their support coordinator may not be a good fit, leading to communication barriers or differences in approach.
  2. Evolving Needs: As participants’ needs change over time, you may require a support coordinator with a different skill set or expertise to better align with your changing requirements.
  3. Relocation:  A move to a new area might require changing your support coordinator so that they can fully provide localised support.
  4. Personal Preference: You might simply desire a different perspective or approach in managing your support for various personal reasons.

How to Change Your NDIS Support Coordinator: Essential Steps

Changing your support coordinator involves several key steps to ensure that your needs continue to be met effectively. These include: 

  1. Assessing Your Support Needs: Reflect on your current support needs and identify the specific reasons why you’re considering changing support coordinators. It’s important to understand why your current arrangement isn’t working and what you need from a new coordinator prior to making the change.
  2. Research Potential Coordinators: Take the time to research and identify potential support coordinators who better align with your needs, preferences, and values.
  3. Contact the NDIS: Reach out to the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) or your local NDIS office to inform them of your decision to change support coordinators and request assistance in finding a new coordinator.
  4. Inform Your Current NDIS Support Coordinator: Have an open and honest conversation with your existing support coordinator to discuss your decision and ensure a smooth transition process.
  5. Transition Effectively: Collaborate and work closely with both your current and new support coordinators during the transition period to ensure continuity of support & the transfer of relevant information as well as minimise disruption.
