Our NDIS Team
Carolyn GrayLocal Representative
Carolyn has worked in Disability Care in various organisations in the Launceston area over the past 20 years. This time includes direct care work in the community, group homes and day support services. Training covers medication management, fire training, swim rescue training, epilepsy awareness and gastronomy management.
Launceston is a capital city at the mouth of the Tamar River in the Tamar valley. Then two other Rivers join it, the South Esk and North Esk Rivers. We have a population of approximately 106,200 people. Many live and work in the suburbs. These are Rocherlea, Ravenswood, Trevallyn, Youngtown and the aptly named Riverside. We are famous for our Cataract Gorge, with beautiful walks, wildlife, chairlift and restaurant.
The gorge is only half an hour drive from the City centre and a few minutes walk to the beginning of the second track. In fact, one is wheelchair friendly and the other a little more challenging with lots of steps and steep inclines. Eventually, this track will lead you to the river with the outdoor pool and lovely grounds.
The NDIS in the Northern Tasmania Region
Local Area Coordinators (LACS) can be accessed in Launceston and the North East region of Georgetown, Dorset, Flinders Island, West Tamar, Break O'Day and northern Midlands of Tasmania through Baptcare. Local Area Coordinators (LACS) Services in the North West of the state are managed by Mission Australia. Both services have an early childhood intervention service (ECEI) for children from 0 to 6 years of age. Launceston has a National Disability Insurance Agency.
