Posted on 09 July 2018

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is seeking suitable organisations to partner with to deliver the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) through Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) and Local Area Coordination (LAC) services in Western Australia.

The Partners in the Community (PITC) Program engages experienced and qualified organisations with strong local knowledge and understanding of the needs of people with disability or developmental delay, to work with the NDIA to help deliver the NDIS.

ECEI services support children aged 0-6 years who have a developmental delay or disability to develop the skills they need to take part in daily activities and achieve the best possible outcomes throughout their life.

LAC services support people with disability aged 7 and above to access services in their local communities, as well as supporting participants along their NDIS pathway.
