Guide for Support Coordination
Support Coordination is about self-determination and empowerment of a person living with a disability in partnership with the important people in their life. It focuses on using a person’s strengths to build capacity and bring about change. A favourite expression that sums up Support Coordination: “give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach a person to fish and you feed them for a lifetime”.
