Local Area Coordination

Local Area Coordination is a scheme to help people avoid reaching a crisis in their life or to help people to recover if a crisis has already happened. We work with you and your family to help you realise a better life.
The support is free; there are no assessments or referral process, and no time limits. 

How we can help

We can support people to:

  • Access information and support
  • Establish what would make a good life
  • Identify personal strengths
  • Plan for the future
  • Be heard in the local community
  • Be a part of the local community
  • Develop relationships and community networks


Support networks

Coordinators have existing connections and relationships to help people in crises. These include:

  • Council services
  • Health services
  • Emergency services
  • Volunteer organisations
  • Community Groups
