Announcement of Early Childhood Partners

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has announced the appointment of our new Early Childhood Partners in NSW

Six organisations have been appointed to deliver the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Approach as Early Childhood Partners in NSW.
 
The Early Childhood Partners have had experience in Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) service provision and/or have experience in the delivery of the NSW Transitional ECEI model.
 
In NSW, the new Partners delivering ECEI services are:
  • Lifestart (Service Areas: Central Coast, Illawarra Shoalhaven, South Eastern Sydney, Sydney and Nepean Blue Mountains).
  • Northcott (Service Areas: Hunter New England, Mid North Coast, Northern NSW and Western Sydney).
  • Mission Australia (Service Areas: Far West and Western NSW).
  • EACH (Service Areas: South Western Sydney and Southern NSW).
  • Intereach (Service Area: Murrumbidgee).
  • Cerebral Palsy Alliance (Service Area: Northern Sydney).
The Early Childhood Partners will be able to leverage their existing relationships with the current NSW ECI service providers to ensure a smooth transition for children with a developmental delay or disability and their families as we move toward full scheme NDIS and a national ECEI Approach.
 
ECIA NSW/ACT has contacted the NDIA to request a forum be held in NSW and for communications to be put in place as soon as practicable between the Early Childhood Partners and the outgoing ECEI Transition Providers and NDIS registered service provides delivering Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) services, in order to ensure a smooth transition as we move forward in establishing the NDIA’s ECEI Approach in NSW.
