Local Area Coordination: Catalyst for a System Wide Prevention Approach

Local Area Coordination: Catalyst for a System Wide Prevention Approach

Local Area Coordination is a very personal, human approach to supporting individuals and families to build resilience, relationships, contribution – a good life – and reduce demand for, and dependence on, services. It also nurtures more welcoming, inclusive and supportive communities and, crucially, creates the conditions for wider systems change.

In this report, Les Billingham (Head of Adult Social Care and Community Development – Thurrock Council) and Maureen McEleney (Housing Consultant and Interim Manager. Currently employed as Interim Assistant Director Housing and Growth – London Borough Waltham Forest) reflect on the urgent need for change, the range of outcomes for individuals, families, communities and services and the impact of Local Area Coordination as a driver for positive systems change.

International Initiative for Disability Leadership (IIDL) Learning Exchange

In May 2018, Inclusive Neighbourhoods, in partnership with Thurrock Council and the Local Area Coordination Network CIC (England and Wales) hosted an international Leadership Exchange in Thurrock as part of the International Initiative for Disability Leadership (IIDL) 2018 Leadership Exchange.

Over the two days, we were privileged to be joined by leadership colleagues from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK, as well as local people in Thurrock who had experienced Local Area Coordination support within their communities.

We explored

  • The history of Local Area Coordination
  • What it is/is not
  • Key factors driving outcomes
  • International and national experiences and learning
  • Local Area Coordination contribution to whole systems change and reform
  • Future opportunities to work together and share learning in the future – an international Learning Network

You can read the Thurrock report here.

We subsequently shared our learning at the IIDL conference in Stockholm – a great opportunity to build relationships, share the Local Area Coordination journey and learn about other complementary strength based, citizen led approaches.
