Depending on your situation and support needs, you will receive help to start your plan with one of the coordinators below. You may have already been in contact with these Partners in the Community, at your original planning meeting. 

Early Childhood Early Intervention (ecei) Coordinator 

For families and carers of children aged 0-6 years. 

Local Area Coordinator (lac) 

For NDIS participants aged seven and over. 

ecei Coordinators and lacs come from organisations in your local community and work with the NDIA to deliver the NDIS. Visit to find  ecei and Local Area Coordination Partner in your area. 

If ecei Coordinators or lacs are not available in your area, the NDIA will help you connect to the NDIS and services or to supports in the community. 

Support Coordinator 

If you need more help coordinating your supports, the NDIA may fund a Support Coordinator. A Support Coordinator can help implement your plan and build your ability to connect with supports and services. Your NDIA Planner may also consider a Support Coordinator if your situation is more complex or you have specific goals you need help coordinating your supports and services to achieve.
