LAC Operational Changes

November 18th, 2020

There have been a number of changes to the way that we are operating as a result for the COVID-19 pandemic. While we continue to work with participants, their carers and the community, the Vinnies LAC offices are currently closed. This includes offices in the following areas:

  • Hunter/ New England
  • Central Coast
  • Central Sydney
  • South West Sydney and
  • South East Sydney

While we are implementing physical distancing strategies we would like to remain socially connected  with our participants, their informal support networks and the communities in which we operate. We continue to conduct planning meetings via the telephone and online video conferencing platforms where possible, we are checking in with participants and their supports during this time and we continue to conduct information sessions via online platforms and offer supports to people wanting to access the NDIS. Please check out our what’s on page if you are interested in a virtual information session.

You can also connect with us through our Knowledge Hub if you have any questions or need assistance.
