National Disability Insurance Scheme partnering with Mission Australia

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians under the age of 65 with a significant and permanent disability.

The Mission Australia Local Area Coordination Service is available to answer your questions about the NDIS and to help link you to mainstream and community supports. Local Area Coordinators (LAC) will be available each week to answer your questions about the NDIS on an individual basis.

We are inviting people across the North East Metro region to meet with a LAC who can help with:

  • How to access the NDIS
  • How to prepare for your NDIS planning
  • How to understand and use your NDIS plan
  • Using the NDIS my Place Participant Portal
  • How to manage the budgets in your plan
  • How to find and engage providers to help you meet your goals
  • How to link to mainstream and community services

Now available in Midland and Morley with no appointment required, you can come along and meet with a LAC to seek assistance with your NDIS plan or access to the scheme.

Attend a free NDIS Mission Australia information session to help you to get started:

Monday 10.00am to 12noon
Unit 5, 9 Boag Road, Morley

Friday 10.00am to 12noon
Unit 2, 3 The Crescent, Midland

Arrangements can be made to support people who require interpreters or who have specific cultural requirements.
