NDIS Local Area Coordination & ECEI


Baptcare provides NDIS Local Area Coordination

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is changing how disability services are provided to Australians with a significant and permanent disability. Baptcare is proud to be an NDIS Partner in the Community provider, delivering Local Area Coordination in Tasmania and South Australia.

What does Local Area Coordination (LAC) involve?

Local Area Coordinators work with people who meet the NDIS access requirements, as well as referrer agencies and service providers. Put simply, we work with you to understand what is important to you and what you want to achieve from your NDIS plan.

We also work with communities to promote social inclusion and opportunities for people with a disability. We provide a range of community outreach programs, workshops and information sessions. For more information on what’s happening in your area, visit and ‘like’ our Facebook page.
