Transitioning from your Early Childhood (EC) Partner

Once your child turns 7 years old, the management and planning for their NDIS support will transition from your Early Childhood Partner to Social Futures. Social Futures is an NDIS Partner in the Community delivering the NDIS Local Area Coordination (LAC) program across regional NSW, including the Western, Northern & Central Coast Regions.

Our Early Childhood Transitions Team is on hand to help you with this process – they will speak to you about how your child’s NDIS plan is going, and support you with the transition to the LAC Program.

Your next steps toward the LAC Program

The next steps toward transitioning to the LAC Program may include contact from our Participant Experience Team if your child’s plan is ending soon, or, you will be assigned to an LAC planner who will contact you to check in and monitor your child’s plan.

Your LAC will begin to talk to you about some of the differences between the Early Childhood Approach and the LAC program as well as support you in getting ready for your first plan review.

Your Planning Meeting

If you have a planning meeting booked with an LAC Planner, please be sure to have your child’s medical reports ready for your planning meeting. You can:

At any time, you are more than welcome to contact our LAC Participant Experience Team with any questions on 1800 522 679, or you can email us at [email protected]. We are here to support you and to make this transition as smooth as possible.
