SRS is a registered provider of Support Coordination under the NDIS. Support Coordination is provided to assist participants and their support network to navigate the NDIS, identify and engage supports and services that will be required with the funding that has been given. Our Support Coordination team accepts referrals within a 250km area of Mildura.

SRS Support Coordinators can assist you with SDA (Specialist Disability Accommodation) Applications and help you to explore mainstream and community housing options. Support Coordination can assist you to engage with local therapists and explore AT (assistive Technology) to assist you in your home and everyday life.
We will endeavour to assist you with capacity building yourself and your support network and look forward to working with you on this NDIS journey.
SRS is registered to provide support connection, support coordination as well as specialised support coordination.
Support Connection: This support is to build your ability to connect informal, community and funded supports enabling you to get the most out of your plan and achieve your NDIS goals.
Support Coordination: Also known as coordination of supports. This support will assist you to build skills needed to understand, implement and use your NDIS plan. A support Coordinator will work with you to ensure a mix of supports are used to increase your capacity to maintain relationships, manage service delivery tasks and live more independently. Support Coordination will also assist you to engage within the community.
Specialised Support Coordination: This is a higher level of support coordination for people whose situations are more complex and require specialist support. A specialist support coordinator will assist you to manage challenges in your support environment and ensure consistent delivery of services.
