How we can help you
PNSW Connect is a single point of contact for your NDIS questions and requirements.
We will help you understand what options are available now and in future, support your preparations for entry into the NDIS, then link you with the services you require.
We can provide:
- Informative publications
- Tools to help you plan and prepare for your conversations with NDIS Planners.
- Stories of people like you who are already NDIS participants, so you know what to expect.
- Answers to your questions.
- Support to reapply or appeal when decisions do not go your way.
- Services under your NDIS Plan
The Connect team includes a Registered Nurse of 30 years’ experience in the role of NDIS Nurse Advocate and a dedicated Social Worker who will connect you with the services and supports you need under the NDIS.
The PNSW Connect team can support you to make informed decisions when it comes to the NDIS.
Tip: It is beneficial to request Support Coordination as part of your first Plan so you can use your funding for maximum benefit and learn the ins and outs of the NDIS process. Call us to find out how to request Support Coordination.
