APM Communities delivers National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Partners in the Community services in the following areas of Western Australia, Queensland, and the Northern Territory:
Our Local Area Coordinators (LACs) help people with disability, NDIS participants, families and carers to identify and access the support they need.
This includes helping you to realise your individual goals and aspirations by connecting you to community and mainstream services.
LACs also work with these services and organisations to be more inclusive and supportive of people with disability.
We are proud to provide Local Area Coordination services and our LACs are dedicated to helping you access the right support.
Find out how to tailor your supports and services to best meet your needs and preferences. These steps will help you have a voice in selecting the right services for you.
We know everyone’s needs are different.
We also know how quickly your circumstances can change or become more complicated.
Meet with you, your family and carer to learn about your current situation
Make it a priority to understand your goals
Develop a plan to help you achieve your goals
Link you to information sources, supports and services in the community
As required, help you connect with the NDIA to determine your eligibility for the scheme
If you or someone you care for needs help accessing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or other support services in your community, we can guide you through the process.
The NDIA will contact you by letter to confirm your eligibility for the scheme.
An NDIA delegate is responsible for approving the funding attached to your plan. When your plan is approved, your LAC will help you put your plan into action.
Not every person with a disability will be eligible for an NDIS Plan, if you or the person you care for need help, we can still support you with information and help to connect you to local mainstream and community organisations.
