Invictus Disability Services (NDIS Support Co-ordinators) can support you to understand and implement the funded supports in your plan and link you to community, mainstream and other government services. A Support Coordinator will focus on supporting you to build skills and direct your life as well as connect you to providers. At Invictus Disability Support Services we aim to provide person centred care. Our priority is to provide care that is specific and holistic to the needs of people living with disabilities. We have highly qualified support workers and support co-ordinators to ensure that people living with disabilities have the freedom to choose the services and supports that best help them achieve their goals.
In March 2020 the Australian Government temporarily introduced flexible access to support coordination in response to COVID-19 and its impact on support delivery. This included allowing participants who did not have specific funding included in their Capacity Building budget for support coordination, or those needing to increase their use of support coordination services, to temporarily use other areas of their funding to access support coordination. As restrictions ease around the country, the demand for flexible support coordination has also eased. Participants and providers are returning to their usual services and are able to easily find, choose and access their preferred services. This temporary measure will end on 31 March 2021. Read More
We understand that cultural challenges of language and understanding of Australian NDIS guidelines might make accessing and making the most of your funding difficult. We want to make sure that we support you in your ability to connect with informal, community and funded supports enabling you to get the most out of your plan and achieve your goals.
“Disability is natural. We must stop believing that disabilities keep a person from doing something. Because that’s not true . . . Having a disability doesn’t stop me from doing anything.” ― Benjamin Snow. Need help navigating your funding?

If I self-manage or plan manage my plan, will I still be able to receive funding for support coordination? Yes. The decision for a plan to be self-managed, plan-managed or NDIA-managed has no effect on funding support coordination. Funding support coordination is decided by what is considered reasonable and necessary. When creating your plan you can discuss with your planner, LAC, or ECEI Coordinator what your plan management options are and the differences between them. Invictus Disability Support Services are registered NDIS Support Co-ordinators who can help co-ordinate the support you need, ensuring you get the most out of your NDIS funding.Learn More
