Huddle Community Services provides a range of supports under the NDIS – you can find out more about these supports below. Each support service can be tailored to your individual needs and goals.

 

An initial meeting with a member of Huddle Community Services staff will be arranged within two (2) working days of your enquiry. This will give you the opportunity to talk about who you are, what you want to achieve, and how you feel we can best support you. The meeting will be on your terms – if you’d prefer to catch-up in person, via phone or email, or somewhere public – let us know.

 

If you need support with understanding your NDIS plan or connecting with providers, but our programs don’t meet your needs – feel free to get in touch – and we’ll see if there’s something we can do for you.

Support Coordination

Support Coordination can support you to find and connect with the services and providers that can assist you to reach your goals. The NDIS describes Support Coordination as 'strengthening a participant’s ability to coordinate their supports and participate in the community'. This may include resolving points of crisis, and developing resilience in the participant's network. Contact us if you'd like to find out more about Support Coordination with Huddle Community Services.

Home Program

The Home Program can support you to find affordable, safe and appropriate accommodation. The NDIS describes Assistance with Accommodation and Tenancy Obligations as 'support to guide, prompt, or undertake activities to ensure the participant obtains/retains appropriate accommodation. May include assisting to apply for a rental tenancy or to undertake tenancy obligations.'. Contact us if you'd like to find out more about The 'Home Program' with Huddle Community Services.

Our Process

Get in contact with us via phone or email.

We book a time and place to meet with you. This could be our office, your home or somewhere you feel comfortable, like a cafe or library.

We talk about you, your goals, and how you want to achieve them. We write down this information and start thinking about how we can best support you.

We begin introducing you to support providers and organising your services to meet your needs in a holistic and individualised way.

Getting started

 

Within the first two weeks of working together, your Support Coordinator will:

 

  • Meet with you in a place you feel comfortable, which may be your home, our offices, or a cafe
  • Work to understand your needs, strengths, preferences and goals
  • Map out the services you currently access, in order to identify gaps and understand your support network
  • Support you to understand your NDIS plan
  • Map out what kind of services and supports that your funding can provide
  • Map out what level of ongoing Support Coordination you will receive through the rest of your plan
  • Begin to link you with services in order to meet your needs

Ongoing support

 

For the remainder of your plan period, your Support Coordinator will continue to make the most of your NDIS plan and support you to identify and access quality services that are appropriate for your specific needs. Some of the assistance that your Support Coordinator may provide on an ongoing basis include:

 

  • Resolving problems with your plan if any issues arise
  • Understanding and navigating the NDIS system
  • Altering services or supports to adapt to your changing needs
  • Making referrals
  • Working with you to make sure that all of the services and supports that you access are linked and communicating with each other so that you are receiving consistent and holistic supports
  • Engaging with your family and support networks
  • Maximising your NDIS budget
  • Responding to points of crisis
  • Tracking your goals and adapting to changes
  • Increasing your capacity to manage your own supports

Preparing for the future

 

In the last eight weeks of your plan, your Support Coordinator can assist you to prepare for your NDIS plan review – a process that reviews your supports and how they can be adapted to your changing needs. As part of this process, your Support Coordinator can:

 

  • Collect all necessary information from the services you have been accessing throughout your plan
  • Liaise with your NDIS contact about the details of the NDIS review
  • Support you during the NDIS Plan Review meeting
  • Continue to support you after the NDIS Plan Review to implement any changes
  • Once you receive your new NDIS Plan, your Support Coordinator can continue to work with you to understand, use, and make the most of it.
