Baptcare’s Local Area Coordinators

 
Local Area Coordinators work with people living with disabilities to put everything into place to achieve their goals and improve their quality of life

– Sash, Baptcare Local Area Coordinator

Starting your journey

If you are living with a disability or caring for someone living with a disability, our Local Area Coordinators (LACs) are friendly, caring people who can connect you with support and services in your community.

Their aim is to help people aged from 7 - 65 years get the services they need to achieve their individual goals, big and small.

We do this in partnership with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA)

NDIS

Baptcare is an NDIA Partner in the Community, so we can help you create a support plan and access the funding you may be eligible for through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Many people find the NDIA and NDIS daunting and confusing. Don’t worry.

Your LAC is there to help people with disabilities and their carers understand the system, navigate your way around and access funding that you’re eligible for.

Is it hard to get a Baptcare LAC?

No, it’s easy!

If you live in one of the areas where we work, all you need to do is call. <postcode services check/link to overview page>

Baptcare’s LACs are experienced, friendly, kind and understanding. They’ll take the time to speak with you, understand your unique situation and needs.

Our LACs have helped thousands of people living with disabilities of all kinds to connect with  services, programmes and people in their community.

Their services are free to you, so don’t hesitate to call to find out more: CONTACT DEETS

Check out our video “An Ordinary Life” below to see just how life-changing the support of an LAC can be.

What practical help will an LAC give me?

Your LAC is there to support  you from the moment you first call them, until you don’t need them anymore.

First, they’ll spend time getting to know you, and understand your unique needs, goals and what you’d like to improve or change in the future.

Then they’ll make a plan to help you access the funding, support and services you need to help you achieve those goals.

And because your LAC is on your team for the long-term, you can talk with them as you go along, and review and change your plan as your needs change.
