Psychosocial Recovery Coach
Recovery coaches provide support to people with psychosocial disability to live a full and contributing life. People who work with a Psychosocial Coach will be assisted to take more control of their lives and to better manage complex challenges of day to day living.
Through a strong and respectful relationship and skilled coaching, people will be support to build capacity, including strengths and resilience. Recovery coaches work collaboratively with people, their families, carers and supporters to design, plan, implement and adjust a recovery plan.
Recovery coaches collaborate with the broader service system and assist with the coordination of NDIS and other supports.
A Support Coordinator will 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.
Your Support Coordinator will assist you to negotiate with providers about what they will offer you and how much it will cost out of your plan. Support coordinators will ensure service agreements and service bookings are completed. They will help build your ability to exercise choice and control, to coordinate supports and access your local community.
They can also assist you in planning ahead to prepare for your plan review.
Support coordinators will assist you to ‘optimise’ your plan ensuring that you are getting the most out of your funded supports.
