All VCL Behaviour Support Providers meet the requirements outlined in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (Restrictive Practices and Behaviour Support) Rules 2018.
VCL Support Coordinators provide our participants with assistance to comfortably navigate the NDIS and understand their NDIS plan.

VCL Support Coordinators will negotiate supports on behalf of the participant and allocate NDIS funds accordingly to the preferred service provider, At the discretion of the participant VCL Support Coordinators offer advise on how supports can be best used to help them achieve their goals.
