Recovery Coaches

Recovery Coaches

Recovery Coaches are a new NDIS support item that provide support to people living with psychosocial disability to live a full and contributing life.

What Can We Help You With? 

Our Recovery Coaches will support you in:

  • Increasing your recovery skills and personal capacity including motivation, strengths, resilience and decision-making
  • Recovery planning
  • Coordinating NDIS and broader supports
  • Having greater control in your daily living and self-management

What our Recovery Coaches?

Recovery Coaches are a game changer in mental health, promoting the belief that people are the experts in their own lives and have the internal resources to move beyond their diagnoses and reconnect with their strengths and capabilities.

Our Recovery Coaches all hold tertiary qualifications in peer work, mental health or equivalent training, and have experience in mental-health related work.

What is the difference between Recovery Coaches and Support Co-ordinators?

Recovery coaches differ from support co-ordinators in that they have specialist knowledge and skills in psychosocial recovery, mental health and navigating services within the mental health system.

Being that support co-ordination is an element of the recovery coach role, participants generally will not receive funding for both services in their NDIS plan.

Give a Care Recovery Coaches – empowering you to achieve the most out of your NDIS plan.
