Based in the local community, your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) works alongside people and families of any age or ability to help create a vision for the future and build a better life.
Local Area Coordinators will:
Take time to get to know people and build trusting relationships.
Help access relevant information, advice and support at the right time.
Enable people and their families to build and fulfil their vision of a good life.
Help to identify and develop strengths, skills, talents and abilities.
Assist in building, developing and using personal and local networks.
Help people stay strong and be heard so they stay in control of services and resources.
Empower people to become more connected, resilient and more actively involved in a welcoming, inclusive and supportive community. LAC’s support is Free; there are no assessments, no paperwork referrals, and no time-limits, just a meet-up, a cuppa and a chat.
Each LAC has a mobile contact. Find out yours by calling 01983 821000 and asking for the Local Area Co-ordination in Community Wellbeing Department.
