How WayHome Works with
Role of Coordinators
Coordinators play the vital role in making recommendations on what housing option best suits the NDIS Participant.
WayHome does not use Coordination, Exploring Housing or Housing Design funding, which means these resources can be used by Coordinators to give objective, independent advice and guidance to NDIS participants.
WayHome Coordinator Accounts allow Coordinators to find suitable supporters, such as hosts and co-residents, housemates or homes for your clients with ease.
