Baptcare Local Area Coordination
Local Area Coordination (LAC) is a service that provides casework and case coordination in partnership with individuals, their family or carer, and their support network. LAC aims to achieve positive and quality outcomes for people with a disability aged up to 65 years (excluding NDIA participants.) LAC is a targeted service that is made available to people on the basis of their assessed need, assisting people with disability to live independently in the community.
From July 2013, Baptcare will work in partnership with DisabilityCare Australia in provision of a new type of LAC service for young people aged 15-24 years.
Baptcare Gateway accepts referrals for people who want to access disability services and supports, and can complete eligibility assessments for those clients who have not accessed disability services previously.
