Information on who to contact if you want to access disability supports and services.
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
In Victoria, disability supports and services are now provided through the NDIS. If you would like to access disability supports and services, please contact the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) via:
A Local Area Coordination (LAC) partner is also available to help you understand and access the NDIS. They can also assist you with creating and reviewing a NDIS support plan.
If you are seeking disability supports and services for a child aged 0 to six years, you can contact an Early Childhood, Early Intervention (ECEI) partner.
LAC and ECEI partners can also link you to community supports and services in your area, even if you are not eligible for the NDIS.
To find your closest LAC or ECEI partner, use the search tool on the NDIS contact website.
Over 65 years
If you are over 65 years and have not previously received any disability supports or services, please contact My Aged Care via their website or 1800 200 422.
If you are over 65 years and were receiving specialist disability services before, you will continue to get the same services through the Commonwealth Continuity of Support (CoS) Programme. Please contact your service provider directly, if your needs have changed.
