NDIS Coordinator

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service Brisbane

About the role

The NDIS Coordinator's key role function is to coordinate access, connection and support services for NDIS clients seeking assistance from ATSICHS. The role will assist in building connections and engaging support services while building capacity and enabling participants to live more independently and be included in their communities. In addition the NDIS Support Coordinator will provide assistance to prospective ATSICHS clients who are applying to be a participant in the NDIS at all stages including applications and appeals in order to improve acceptance rate of 'Access Request' applications for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living with a disability.

The NDIS Coordinator provides support to staff, more specifically health practitioners and the community, to educate, implement and streamline processes to ensure eligible ATSCHIS clients are provided the support they required through the NDIS. The role works to skill ATSICS staff in understanding how the NDIS can assist their clients and assists in building knowledge and understanding of the scheme within the community.
