Finding support in your community - Local Area Coordination
Posted on 14/06/2017
Finding support in your community
If you are vulnerable due to age, frailty, disability or mental health issues, you can supported to identify and pursue your vision for a good life. This is done through an innovative approach called Local Area Coordination. The aim is to strengthen the capacity of communities to welcome and include people and to make services more personal, flexible and accountable.
It also helps to build more welcoming and inclusive communities through partnership and collaboration with individuals and families, local organisations and the broader community.
The overall aim is to support vulnerable people to live within welcoming and supportive communities.
