Find your Local LAC Role of your Local LAC

LACs can help you to:

  • Understand and access the NDIS – This can include workshops or individual conversations about the NDIS.

 

  • Create a plan – If you are eligible for an NDIS support plan, your LAC will have a conversation with you to learn about your current situation, supports, and goals to help develop your plan. It is important to know that LACs cannot approve an NDIS plan, this is done by someone from the NDIA.

 

  • Implement your plan – Your LAC will help you to find and start receiving the services in your NDIS plan. Your LAC can also provide assistance throughout your plan if you have any questions.

 

  • Review your plan – Your LAC will work with you to make changes to your plan through a plan review. This generally occurs 12 months after your plan is implemented.

For participants by participants!

i-Stive was created out of the frustration of trying to find suitable supports

We are the first of its kind to focus on making it easier for participants to find support in all areas, i-Strive is really designed with the intention of being the go to resource for connecting people with NDIS Supports across Australia. There are some real benefits to this:

We have the ability to tailor our searches and reviews specifically for the NDIS community,  potentially to provide a clean search experience compared to Google. Think of it like this: Google today is like a giant international phone book, and we are like a much smaller dedicated and focused one. If you were a search engine wanting to deliver the most useful information to your users, would you give them the giant international book, or the dedicated one?

Brand recognition: When you stop and think about it, the only reason NDIS participants struggle to find the right support today is because they either find it via random searches on the internet. It is our goal to become the thing everyone points to when they don’t know where to refer to someone. Eventually i-Strive will be known across Australia and people will think of it when looking for referrals.

Dedication

We’re dedicated to working on our site, blogging, and doing everything we can to get i-Strive to be the best it can be!

In our first year we’re planning on spending at least 60% of earned income on building and advertising the site. We don’t know what other people spend on their sites, but we’re expecting that this expense will slowly taper off as we rank in search engines, but we will never spend less than 10% on advertising.

We’re going to spend a lot of time writing and publicizing quality blog posts. This is a key part of any good SEO strategy and we will be doing lots of other things to boost our rankings in search engines so that clients will find our site and see your listing.

If you’re interested in seeing some of the plans we have for i-Strive as well as the things we are working on and have completed you can check out our updates and changes page.

User Friendly

i-Strive is easy to use.

Users can also refine their search results to find therapists who specialize in specific issues, work in certain areas, practice from a specific therapeutic approach, etc. All while viewing locations on a map.

This site is dedicated towards NDIS Participants, carers, and providers unlike many other directories that are spread out across the country/world. We plan on blogging about local news, talking about local events, and advertising locally. 

Whether it be by contributing to or reading our i-Strive blog, connecting in person or online through social media, or just being more visible to each other and potential clients, we hope i-Strive will serve as a way for providers all over Australia to connect and work together to help our community.
