BDMS focuses on strengthening a participant’s ability to design and then build their supports with an emphasis on linking to the broader systems of support across a complex service delivery environment. It focuses on supporting participants to direct their lives, not just their services. BDMS involves working together to understand the funding model, identify what participants can expect from services, and how participants want their program designed. Coordination of Supports also includes coaching participants and working with participants to develop capacity and resilience in their network. This support helps participants to connect with community and broader systems of support, assisting clients to develop knowledge about the plan funding and its purpose.
