About Us

Mission Australia is a non-denominational Christian charity that has been helping vulnerable Australians move towards independence for more than 155 years.

Every day we support people nationwide by combating homelessness, assisting disadvantaged families and children, addressing mental health issues, fighting substance dependencies and much more.

We're generously supported by our funders, partners and tens of thousands of everyday Australians, who make the work of our tireless volunteers and staff possible.


The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will work to support people with disability to participate in and contribute to social and economic life, as well as provide certainty that people with disability will receive the care and support they need over their lifetime. The NDIS provides a number of ways to assist people with disability to exercise choice, including taking reasonable risks in the pursuit of their goals and the planning and delivery of their supports. One of the ways this is done is through Local Area Coordination (LAC). For more information, please search for ’NDIS’ online.
