Local Area Coordinators help you stay safe, well, independent and connected to your local community, they:
- help raise awareness of available resources
- provide links to local services
- support people with a wide range of issues
- develop resilience and social inclusion in communities
Local Area Coordinators work with individuals and families of all ages and abilities. They take time to get to know you, your family and friends, your carers and your community, so they can help you to build a strong support network.
The Local Area Coordinator's role
Local Area Coordinators can support you in many ways, such as:
- taking steps to make your life better
- helping you access a range of information
- getting the right help from available services
- developing relationships and community networks
- getting your voice heard about things that are important to you
- helping you find volunteering opportunities
Our Local Area Coordinator case studies provide examples of the kind of work Local Area Coordinators do.
