About the role

We deliver high quality Specialist Support Coordination to people with a disability and their families. Specialist Support Coordination aims to build individual capacity to:

Being a valued member of the Specialist Support Coordination team, you will go above and beyond to strengthen our participants’ abilities to coordinate and implement supports and participate fully in the community. This includes initial assistance with linking participants with the right providers to meet their needs, assistance to source appropriate supports, coordinating both funded and mainstream supports, resolving points of crisis, attending Care Team Meetings, liaising with a variety of internal and external stakeholders and developing participant capacity within their own network and community.

As a Specialist Support Coordinator you would be joining a supportive team who work across multiple sites. Every day is different.
