NDIS Local Area Coordination (LAC)

Intereach is partnering with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to deliver Local Area Coordination (LAC) Services for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in the Loddon, Goulburn and Mallee areas of Victoria.

Loddon covers the local government areas of:

  • Campaspe
  • Central Goldfields
  • Greater Bendigo
  • Loddon
  • Macedon Ranges
  • Mount Alexander

 

Goulburn covers the local government areas of:

  • Greater Shepparton
  • Moira
  • Mitchell
  • Murrindindi
  • Strathbogie

 

Mallee covers the local government areas of:

  • Buloke
  • Gannawarra
  • Mildura
  • Swan Hill

 

The NDIS has a number of ways to help people with disability to exercise choice and control in the planning and delivery of their supports to achieve their goals. One of the ways this is done is through Local Area Coordination.

Local Area Coordination will work with both individuals and the community in the Loddon, Goulburn and Mallee areas and will be skilled at working with people who have all kinds of disability and who come from all walks of life.

What do Local Area Coordinators do?

Local Area Coordinators have three key roles:

  • They will link you to the NDIS
  • Link you to information and support in the community, and
  • Work with their local community to make sure it is more welcoming and inclusive for people with disability.
