Connecting and coordinating your services, so you can focus on living your life, your way
When you have an acquired brain injury, a great deal of support is available for your recovery to rebuild your skills and readjust to everyday life.
Our Specialist Support Coordination service is designed to support people who’ve experienced an ABI to find and keep track of services, overcome challenges, and come up with solutions when things don’t go to plan.
Melbourne City Mission’s Specialist Support Coordinators have many years of experience supporting people living with an ABI and their families or support network.
With funding from your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
plan or your Individual Support Package (ISP)
, we can work with you to get things up and running.
