Carers Queensland to provide NDIS Local Area Coordination in 2017
Carers Queensland is excited to be partnering with the NDIS to provide the Local Area Coordinator Partners in the Community Program in Ipswich and Toowoomba in late February 2017, working to ensure more people live fulfilling and connected lives.
As a NDIS LAC Partner, Carers Queensland will get to know you, what’s important to you and help you get the right services in place to support you to have the life you want.
Your support services will be tailored to help to meet your goals, whether you want to become more involved in the community through volunteering, sports clubs or local theatre, live more independently or improve your wellbeing.
How will NDIS LAC support you?
Your NDIS LAC will:
- meet with you, your family and carer to talk about your current support network
- understand what you want to achieve and develop a plan to help you get there
- help you find and access the best support services to meet your needs
- assist you in managing any issues you face with getting services and support
- link you to information and support in the community so you are included and involved.
We will help you get started with the NDIS and ensure the support is meeting your needs.
