The NDIS works with suitably experienced and qualified partner organisations to deliver local area coordination and the early childhood approach to Australians with disability. They are the face of the NDIS in the community.

If you are between the ages of 9 and 64 years of age, call the local area coordination partner in your local government area. They will be your main contact point for the NDIS.

If you have a child younger than 6 with developmental delay or younger than 9 with disability, call the early childhood partner in your local government area.

The early childhood partner will be your main contact point for the NDIS and will help you understand and access the most appropriate supports for your child
