Alliance news

Early Connections Alliance – a network committed to early childhood intervention best practice. 

Early Connections has provided life changing early childhood intervention through education, therapy and support since 1981.

Our teams work together to create a strong and connected Early Childhood Intervention Network on the Mid North Coast. With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme in 2016 five community organisations formed an Alliance to navigate the transition. 

From November 2019 Early Connections Nambucca Valley has withdrawn from the Alliance and will continue to support Nambucca families through local non profit Lifetime Connect.

Four Mid North Coast locations remain united in our vision to continue a strong and connected early childhood intervention network for regional families.

Going forward the Early Connections Alliance operates at:

  • – Manning and Great Lakes,
  • – Port Macquarie Hastings
  • – Kempsey 
  • – Coffs Coast


    Our priority will continue to be the children and families we support. 

“We wish the early childhood intervention team at Nambucca all the best as they continue to provide services under the Lifetime Connect organisation.

It’s been rewarding to share best practice and ideas as we all transitioned to the NDIS. There have been many learnings and friendships along the way. Families can continue to access early intervention services in Nambucca Valley through Lifetime Connect. 

Our four locations Manning and Great Lakes, Port Macquarie Hastings, Kempsey and Coffs Coast will offer evidence based supports and excellence in early childhood intervention in 2020 and beyond,” said Caryn Maher, Manager Coffs Coast.
