A Local Area Coordinator (LAC) is an individual within community-based organisations who partners with the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency) to help deliver the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme).
LACs support people with disability in functions such as:
- Support NDIS participants in the local community to make it as inclusive as possible
- Work to develop a plan, assist in the implementation of the plan, monitor how the plan is going and undertake a Plan Review.
An LAC will be the main point of contact for the NDIS.
