NDIS Local Area Coordination

Have you heard about the NDIS yet?

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a new national scheme to support people with disability to achieve their goals, participate in their communities and to provide them, their families and carers with personalised, flexible care and support.

The NDIS brings choice and flexibility for people with disability. One way the NDIS empowers participants with choice is to provide personalised planning and delivery of their supports. This is mostly achieved through Local Area Coordination services, or LAC.

Social Futures is excited to be partnering with the NDIS to provide our community with LAC services.

We will support people with disability in our community to plan for the NDIS in advance of the roll out, which starts in many parts of regional NSW in July. We are delivering LAC services throughout most of regional New South Wales and are working together with other community organisations in some areas to preserve their local relationships and knowledge. Social Futures is providing LAC services in the following NDIS service areas:

  • Northern NSW
  • Mid North Coast
  • Western NSW
  • Far West
  • Murrumbidgee
