What Sets Support Coordination Academy Apart

In the late 1990’s Julie’s three children were all diagnosed with ASD while the family was living in the Pilbara. Julie and her husband were early implementers of WA’s self-direction model, as they coordinated early intervention and other supports for their children. Insights from these experiences ground Julie’s work in the values of family and individual empowerment.

Around the same time Phil was starting his career as an Occupational Therapist working on the closure of one of the last large institutions in Queensland. He has worked extensively with individuals and families in therapy, supports facilitation and community linking roles, and has worked with the NDIA and service providers to design service models, tools and resources.

SCA was created to help people with disability to get the best value and outcomes from their NDIS plans. The organisation’s first priority has been to grow and improve the supply of Support Coordination services by giving organisations and Support Coordinators the clarity and tools they need to thrive.

In 2019 Mary came on board as the General Manager, and took over the business in 2021.  Mary has a Social Work background with strong social justice, a best practice focus and business development experience.   Mary is extremely dedicated to making a real difference in the lives of both people living with disability and the workers who support and empower them.
