If you are an NDIS participant, your health and safety and the wellbeing of our Local Area Coordinators, are our top priority.

Please stay up to date with the latest advice from the Australia Government and the Department of Health regarding the Coronavirus.

We will use this page to update you on any information that may impact your Local Area Coordination services.

If you have any questions, please contact your LAC directly or call us on 1300 276 522.
 

Latest update 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has temporarily changed the way we are looking after you at APM.
 
We are still here to support you on your NDIS journey, but we will be delivering our services differently to help keep you and our teams safe.
 
Most of our offices remain open, but where possible we will conduct meetings by phone or video instead of face-to-face. NDIS participants can contact their LAC by calling 1300 276 522.
