The Brotherhood of St. Laurence (BSL) is a social justice organisation working alongside people experiencing disadvantage to address the fundamental causes of poverty in Australia.

We believe no one should live in poverty. It’s why we exist.

Our mission is to pursue lasting change; to create a more compassionate and just society where everyone can thrive.

BSL is a Partner in the Community with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), delivering Local Area Coordination (LAC) and the early childhood approach.

We deliver disability services in North-East Melbourne, Hume Merri-bek, Bayside Peninsula, Western Melbourne and Brimbank Melton.

As a community partner, BSL works alongside people with disability to connect with community and mainstream services, provide support to apply to the NDIS and help you use your NDIS plan.

We support people who:

  • Have a disability and are aged 9 to 64 with community connections.
  • Have a developmental delay or developmental concern and are younger than 6 with early connections.
  • Have a disability and are younger than 9 with early connections.
