The role of support coordinator is critical to keeping young people out of aged care. As part of our new Support Coordinator Flagship Program, the Summer Foundation is creating a Community of Practice to encourage knowledge sharing and to foster professional connections between support coordinators. We also plan to connect great support coordinators to those in aged care or at risk of entering aged care.
It is our aim to define the role more clearly so people have a greater understanding of the variety of skills required to not just do the job, but to be a great support coordinator.
We’ll be running training sessions, webinars and offering one-on-one advice to support coordinators as a way of building the skill-set and capabilities of support coordinators. To stay informed of opportunities, or to register your interest in being part of this new program sign up to our support coordinators mailing list.
