Local Area Coordinators

Support in your Community

If you or someone you know needs support due to their age, disability or mental health, we can help.  The Local Area Coordination programme aims to help people to ensure they have a better life.

Our Local Area Coordinators support people by working in partnership with individuals, families and local community organisations. Our Coordinators know how and where to access support in local areas to help people that are in need. We offer a personal and flexible service that will deliver what makes a good life for you.

The Coordinators help people to avoid reaching a crisis in their life, or help them to recover if a crisis has already happened.

How we can help

Your Coordinator can help you to:

  • Access information and services
  • Be heard, be in control and make choices
  • Identify your strengths, goals and needs
  • Find practical solutions to make positive changes
  • Develop using local networks
  • Plan for the future
  • Get involved in your local community

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
