National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Readiness

FOCAS is busy preparing people for the NDIS world - due to roll out with us over the forthcoming months...

The National Disability Insurance Agency has partnered with 'Uniting' to deliver NSW local area coordinator services (LACs)  in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven district.  The LACs will support all  participants (individuals) and their families to successfully transition to the NDIS.

LAC meetings between family members and participants will be held at a venue/time that is convenient to you.  Meetings are not time restricted so enable the documentation in your plan of the reasonable and necessary supports  you require for your immediate needs.  Within this plan will be the identified skills you feel you need to build on, strong community connections you need to make to be able to achieve your goals over the following year.  The aim is  to capture what you need now and what you will need over the forthcoming 12 months to ensure the agency fund you correctly.

FOCAS will naturally attend all NDIS planning meetings for all our participants to walk alongside you on the journey together.

If you have any issues and concerns or would like to discuss your funding/goals or have heard about FOCAS and are looking for support to live your life as you want it....
