Frequently Asked Questions

What is a recovery coach?

A recovery coach is an NDIS funded worker that has mental health knowledge. A recovery coach will:

  • spend time with you, and people important to you, to get to know you and understand your needs

  • help you to find out about different services and supports, and how these can help you

  • help you get support from mental health services

  • help you better understand the NDIS and support you with the NDIS

You can choose a recovery coach with lived experience. A recovery coach with lived experience has their own lived experience of mental ill-health and recovery and are able to use this experience to inform
their work.

Who will get recovery coach funding?

Generally, recovery coach will be funded in plans for people with psychosocial support needs. You do not have to choose a recovery coach if you do not want one.

How much does a recovery coach cost?

A recovery coach costs $80.90 an hour in the day time during weekdays. Your NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator can give you more information on the cost.


How many hours can I get?

The hours are based on your needs. Your NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator will work with you to decide on the number of hours you would need.


I currently have support coordination, how do I get a recovery coach?

You can speak to your support coordinator or contact the NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator to find out how to get a recovery coach.


Can I have both?

For most people, we recommend that you only have a recovery coach because it is a better use of your NDIS plan. Depending on your plan or situation you may choose to have both.

About Challenge Community Services

Over 60 years ago we were a small band of parents and friends seeking support services for our children with disability. Today, Challenge has grown to be one of the largest community support services in New South Wales. We provide support to over 2500 people from Albury to Lismore, Sydney, Dubbo, Tamworth and beyond. With over 900 staff, more than 90 of which have a disability, we strive to comply with and exceed all standards required under State and Federal Acts.
In the spirit of Reconciliation, Challenge Community Services acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this country, and their connection to land, water and community. We pay our respect to them, their cultures and customs, and to Elders both past and present.
