MND Advisory Service - Coordination of Supports

MND Advisory Service

MND Advisors offer invaluable expert guidance and emotional support to those diagnosed with MND and their families. Regular contact is maintained through home visits, phone and email contact and attendance at specialised MND Clinics.

The MND Advisory service is delivered by experienced health professionals who liaise closely with multi-disciplinary health teams. MND Advisors navigate the health service system for people living with MND to ensure they are linked in to services that will meet their needs and ensure the best possible quality of life. MND Advisors also provide a key role in assisting to source a wide range of aids and equipment items which are instrumental in maintaining independence and quality of life.

If you or your family have been diagnosed with MND, you can contact our MND Advisory Service on 6186 4133 or email admin@mndawa.asn.au and one of our MND Advisors will get in touch.

Our MND Advisory Service is available Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4:30pm.  Should your MND Advisor not be available, please do not hesitate to speak with any member of our MND Advisory team for information or assistance.

Coordination of Supports (NDIS)

What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. When it is fully rolled out, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide about 460,000 Australians aged under 65, who have permanent and significant disability with funding for supports and services. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.

The NDIS can provide all people with a disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.

What is Coordination of Supports (CoS)?

A support coordinator is very much like having a personal assistant to assist with the implementation of your NDIS plan.

They will be able to:

  • Assist with your access request, planning meeting, NDIS plan review
  • Understand your NDIS plan, and help budget
  • Source and link you with local supports and providers
  • Maintain a watchful eye on your NDIS budget
  • If your NDIS plan looks to be inadequate, advocate for the best funding package depending on your needs.

How is MNDAWA Different from Other CoS Services?

Our Coordinators are not only helping you navigate the NDIS, they are also able to provide information through our advisory service. This allows us to provide a truly specialised coordination of your support needs with a deep understanding of MND and its impacts.
