How does it work?
Local Area Coordination is an eclectic combination of approaches, delivered in a unique and connected sequence.
Local Area Coordinators support individuals and their families and are based in their local communities as a local, accessible, single point of contact for people with disabilities, mental health needs, older people and their families. This enables the support provided by Local Area Coordinators to be personalised, flexible and responsive, within the context of their family and community life.
They take time to get to know and build positive, trusting relationships with individuals, families and local communities and develop a more personal relationship with a wide range of people and their families.
