When is NDIS coming to our region?

Intereach has been appointed as the local area co-ordination partner for the roll out of the NDIS in the Loddon region from May 1, 2017.

The local area co-ordinator will play a vital role in supporting the community in transitioning to NDIS.

The LACs will work with participants to:

  • Provide assistance to connect to and build informal and natural supports
  • Provide assistance with the planning process and effective implementation
  • Work with community and providers to build inclusion and awareness of the needs of people with disability

Intereach CEO Sue Mathieson said the organisation had a long history of working with rural and regional communities.

“We are excited about the opportunity to be working with the NDIA to deliver LAC services to people with a disability, their families, carers and communities in Northern Victoria, and to bring our experience in effective service delivery in rural areas to other partners,” she said.
