Coordination of Supports

ARC Coordination of Supports is a capacity building service which works alongside participants and their families to enhance their ability to act independently. A Coordinator of Supports will assist the participant and their family to build their understanding of the NDIS, NDIS plans and how the plans can be utilised to achieve the goals of the participant.

More About COS

Supporting your journey towards Independence

A Coordinator of Supports is a specialist in the NDIS, who can provide professional information about local providers, explain funding types, assist with engaging service providers, completing service agreements and strengthening informal support networks. They can assist participants and their families to ‘optimise’ their NDIS plan by engaging the most appropriate provider whether that is funded by the NDIS or through a mainstream service such as Health, Education, Aged Care, etc. 


ARC Coordinators of Support are NDIS Registered providers who operate independently of the other components of ARC Disability Services. This means they will provide expert, unbiased support to participants with a focus on enhancing participant choice and control over the support providers and services involved in their lives.

Because ARC offer multiple services, ARC acknowledge that conflicts of interest have the potential to occur.

ARC is committed to managing conflicts of interest, for which we have developed a Conflict of Interest Statement alongside a Conflict of Interest Policy and Support Coordination Policy. Read our Conflict of Interest Statement below, and find our policies on our Policies for Participants page.
