Baptcare Gateway Disability Services

Baptcare Gateway Disability Services South-West Region

Gateway is a single point of contact (by phone or visit) for people with a disability seeking support and services.

Gateway provides information, advice, referral and assessment and helps individuals access a service that will meet their needs, including referral into disability specific services. Our aim is to strengthen people’s capacity to live independently, to care for their children, and to participate in community life.

Baptcare provides Gateway in the South-West region of Tasmania. The South-West region covers the areas of Glenorchy, Hobart, Huon Valley and Kingborough.

Local Area Coordination (LAC) is a service that provides casework and case coordination in partnership with individuals, their family or carer, and their support network. LAC aims to achieve positive and quality outcomes for people with a disability aged up to 65 years. LAC is a targeted service that is made available to people on the basis of their assessed need, assisting people with disability to live independently in the community.

Baptcare provides LAC services to participants of the NDIS launch site in Tasmania. This pilot provides support and services to all 15 – 24yr old people with a disability who are deemed eligible.

Gateway accepts referrals from people who want to access disability services and supports.

Enquiries or referrals can be made by families or individuals directly, or by professionals working with the family.
