Once your plan is approved by the NDIA, your LAC at APM Communities will meet with you to assist you to understand your plan, the different budgets within it, and how it is managed.
You are welcome to ask someone to come with you, such as a family member, friend, or carer.
We can help you to start using your funded supports in your plan as well as discuss other community and mainstream services that may be able to support your needs (Booklet 3 - Using your NDIS Plan).
Our LACs have in-depth knowledge of the local communities and the available support services.
We can assist you in accessing appropriate resources, such as healthcare, education, housing, employment, and social services.
Our LACs act as a bridge between individuals and service providers, helping to navigate complex systems and coordinating multiple services.
We can also help you develop decision-making skills, problem-solving abilities, and self-advocacy capabilities. We can provide guidance, information, and support to empower you to make informed choices and overcome obstacles.
Overall, our LACs act as facilitators, navigators, and advocates, working alongside you and communities to implement plans that promote independence, well-being, and inclusion.
We play a vital role in ensuring that plans are person-centred, effective, and responsive to your unique needs and aspirations.
