Baptcare will provide Local Area Coordination Services to participants and ILC clients aged seven years and over in the Western Adelaide, Eastern Adelaide and Yorke and Mid-North Service Areas.
Baptcare has a long history of service provision in aged care (both in-home and residential), retirement living, disability services, housing and family supports in Victoria and Tasmania. It currently provides Local Area Coordination in Hobart, Huonville, Kingborough, Glenorchy, Launceston, West Tamar, North Midlands, Georgetown, Dorset, and Break O'Day/Flinders Island. Baptcare is an Early Childhood Early Intervention partner in Tasmania.
Mission Australia will support the Limestone Coast, Murray and Mallee, Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Kangaroo Island, Southern Adelaide, Eyre Western and Far North service regions.
Mission Australia is a national organisation working with people to combat homelessness, assist families and children, and support people with mental health conditions, among other services.
Feros Care will still provide Local Area Coordination in the Northern Adelaide and Barossa Lower Light service areas.
"Baptcare and Mission Australia are two experienced and respected organisations that have existing community connections and infrastructure which will allow them to quickly scale up across South Australia," said Minister for Social Services, Dan Tehan.
"Baptcare and Mission Australia will join existing supplier Feros Care to support an expected 32,300 people with disability in South Australia by 2020."
It is expected that both Baptcare and Mission Australia will be up and running by March 2018.
