Family Support providers NDIS information

Child Safety works with families, carers, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), mainstream Queensland Government agencies and service providers to ensure children and young people with disability across all child protection phases have access to disability supports to meet their needs.

Family and Child Connect (FaCC), Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Family Wellbeing Services (FWS) and Intensive Family Support (IFS) services can support families by helping them navigate the NDIS process. This may include:

NDIS Access

  • Helping people check their NDIS eligibility using the access checklist.
  • Supporting a family to connect with an Early Childhood Approach (ECA) Partner for children aged 0-9.
  • Supporting a family to connect with an NDIS Local Area Coordinator or NDIS office about access for a child aged 9+, young person or an adult.

NDIS Planning

  • Helping a family consider their child or young person's disability and support needs ahead of their NDIS planning meeting.
  • Attending an NDIS planning meeting if requested by the family.

Once the person has an NDIS plan

  • Helping a family connect with a Local Area Coordinator or engage a Support Coordinator (if funded within the plan) to implement their plan.
