NDIS local area coordinators and early childhood partners can help people with disability, children where there are concerns about their development and NDIS participants to find the supports they need to be more independent and do more of the things they enjoy.

Community and mainstream supports are supports and services that are outside the NDIS and generally available to everyone. 

Community services are services people can access through community organisations, like peer-to-peer and community-based groups, religious groups, and services from local councils. 

Mainstream supports are the supports from other government funded services, like health, mental health and education.

We can support you to make connections even if you are not eligible for the NDIS.

The first time you contact us for support, we’ll check your identity. This includes checking your identity documents, and matching you to your photo ID.
