The City of Maribyrnong
The City of Maribyrnong, with a population of approximately 85,000, is a local government area in Melbourne, between 5 and 10 kilometres west from the city centre comprising the suburbs of: Braybrook, Footscray, Kingsville, Maidstone, Maribyrnong, Seddon, Tottenham, West Footscray, and Yarraville.
According to Local Government Victoria, Maribyrnong has the second most ethnically diverse population in Victoria, with 40% of residents born outside Australia. The area is experiencing high population growth attracted by the close proximity to the city, period homes, public transport, cultural diversity, and the Maribyrnong River. Many of the former industrial sites have been replaced by residential developments and new residents are generally more educated and higher income earners.
National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme became available across the Maribyrnong on 1 October, 2018 and contracted The Brotherhood of St Laurence (BSL) to deliver Local Area Coordination (LAC) and Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) services.
The BLS are the main liaison between NDIS care recipients and the NDIS itself, they get in touch with everyone who successfully registers for NDIS consideration and will visit and gather information to allow the NDIS to develop a plan that meets an individual’s needs based on their identified goals.
Plan Management Benefits
Individuals whose plans are managed directly by the NDIS will be restricted to registered NDIS providers, listed on the NDIS website for Maribyrnong. To access other providers in the area, BLS need to request Plan and/or Self Management. Plan Management will not cost the participant and will allow the providers of their choice.
