We’re here to help you

Feros Care has partnered with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to help people with disability live healthy, fulfilling and connected lives. As a Local Area Coordinator (LAC), we will work with you to understand what is important to you and connect you to the services that will support you to live the life you want. Your support services are tailored to meet your goals and improve your overall wellbeing.

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.

NDIS

LACs will help you:

  • 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
