About the Service
The Society delivers essential Local Area Coordination (LAC) services as part of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) rollout in NSW.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) represents a significant change in Australia’s ways of providing disability support with a focus on individual goals, choice, social inclusion and building capacity.
NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.
Aboriginal Local Area Coordinators (ALACs) work directly with NDIS Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal
participants, their families, carers and communities to support their access to and continue engagement with the NDIS. The focus of various LAC activities may change over time based on the participant load and which stage participants are at in the NDIA pathway.
A key focus of the ALAC role is to assist Aboriginal and Non- Aboriginal participants in building their capacity to self-
direct and achieve their goals. ALACs provide a locally based first point of contact designed to improve access to and engagement in, aboriginal and non aboriginal local community and mainstream services.
