Have you recently received your NDIS plan, and or had a plan reset or simply wish to change the service provider and don't know where to start? Don't you worry - we will be covering simple tips on finding the right provider in your area.

Having adequate funding in your plan as you expected is a very good feeling, and we understand it very well. As support coordinators, we have sat with so many NDIS participants in their ndis planning meetings, and we know that sometimes it is not easier to get the funding you wish for and may have to navigate a lot to get your voice heard. Getting that dream plan with the funding you wished for, to kick start your support journey is a step closer to achieving your goals. When we see the ndis participants having smiles on their faces with that feeling, we experience and feel great joy.

Under NDIS, you have total choice and control and you are the driver.

So how do you start with your new or first NDIS plan?

How to navigate through the google search engine system to find registered or unregistered providers?

How to simply change to a provider who can understand your needs well?

Hence it is important to get an idea of the options you may have.

The first thing and probably easiest would be to speak to people who you may know and have been in and/or with NDIS and may have gone through the journey before.

Local area coordinators, social workers, support people, support agencies around you, or your mental health social worker if you have one.

Thanks to the internet, Google, and smartphone technology - as it has definitely revolutionized the way we do things in our life. Check reviews of the providers and their ratings to further shortlist the best providers.

Why is it so important to choose the right provider?

Choosing a provider that is suitable to your needs and that you feel more comfortable with, is important and can make you feel very supported. It can make your NDIS experience a lot smoother and can help you make the most out of your NDIS plan.
