About Local Area Coordination
All Australians have a right to a dignified and meaningful life. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to eligible people with disability to gain more time with family and friends, greater independence, access to new skills, jobs, or volunteering in their community, and an improved quality of life.
SSI partners with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to deliver Local Area Coordination services within two Sydney regions. We support people to access the NDIS and other services and supports in the community.

Does SSI have experience working with people with a disability who are from a cultural and linguistically diverse background?
Yes. Since 2014, SSI has supported people with disability, their families and carers through a number of community-based initiatives such as Ability Links and IgniteAbility Small Business Start ups – a business creation program designed specifically for entrepreneurs with a disability.
Does SSI have experience working with people from an Aboriginal or Torres Straits Islander background?
Yes. SSI has worked with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through initiatives including Ability Links and the development of the organisation’s Reconciliation Action Plan. SSI recognises the importance of engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through a respectful and collaborative approach. The organisation will continue to seek first-hand guidance to build on our knowledge of First Nations communities to create sustainable, respectful and equitable service delivery.
Does SSI have experience working with people where English is their second language?
Yes. SSI has more than 135 bilingual guides and many bilingual staff. Collectively we speak over 100 languages and dialects and can often provide support – written and spoken – in the language of your choice when you need it. Where possible we aim to provide translated resources and can organise interpreters.
