Our LACs will help you move from stage to stage on your pathway with the NDIS. LACs can meet with you, your family and carer to help you understand the NDIS; link you to information and community supports; assist you with access to the NDIS; work with you to create a First Plan based on your goals and current supports; support you to put your NDIS plan into action and to review your plan.

LACs can help you to:

Understand and access the NDIS – This can include workshops or individual conversations about the NDIS.

Create a plan – If you are eligible for an NDIS support plan, your LAC will have a conversation with you to learn about your current situation, supports, and goals to help develop your plan. It is important to know that LACs cannot approve an NDIS plan, this is done by someone from the NDIA.

Implement your plan - Your LAC will help you to find and start receiving the services in your NDIS plan. Your LAC can also provide assistance throughout your plan if you have any questions.

Review your plan – Your LAC will work with you to make changes to your plan through a plan review. This generally occurs 12 months after your plan is implemented.

Linking you to information and support in your community

LACs will help you: Learn about support available in your local community;

Understand how the NDIS works with other government services – this is supports like education, health, and transport;

Sustain informal supports around you – this is family, friends and local community members.

You can ask your LAC about the supports available in your community, even if you're not eligible for an NDIS support plan. Partners delivering LAC services will also work to make your community more welcoming and inclusive.
