How We Help
MNDSA'S work is supported by volunteers who underpin all its activities. Volunteers are involved in facilitated support group programs, telephone and bereavement support programs, organisational support, administration and fundraising.
MNDSA Support Coordinators help to navigate the service system for people living with MND to ensure that they are linked into services that will meet their needs.
MNDSA Support Coordinators support those eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to enter the scheme and guide them through the planning process. People with MND, who have an approved NDIS plan with provision for support coordination, may elect for their MND Support Coordinator to provide support coordination, ensuring continuity of care and support once they commence as a participant in the NDIS. In addition to their role, Support Coordinators can also assist with ongoing advocacy to the NDIS to activate and manage your NDIS plan including assistance with establishing appropriate home and community supports as funded within the plan.
Further information about the NDIS including eligibility criteria, please visit www.ndis.gov.au. The MNDSA Support Coordinator Service is delivered by qualified professionals who have knowledge of MND, the NDIS and extensive experience in the community services sector.
