Disability support and programs

NDIS Local Area Coordination

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was established under the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 (NDIS Act).

The NDIS moves away from the previous system of providing funding to agencies and community organisations, to give funding directly to eligible people with a disability to access the supports and services they need to live and enjoy their life. Learn more about the NDIS.

For most people, a Local Area Coordination (LAC) partner will be their main point of contact for the NDIS.

LAC partners help people with disability to connect to supports, services and local activities. They also help participants to understand the NDIS, meet with participants to create their plan and explain how to make the most of it.

Mission Australia (Mount Barker) is the NDIS Local Area Coordination (LAC) partner for the Adelaide Hills Council area.  Contact them for help accessing the NDIS, creating an NDIS support plan and finding support in your local community:
