Derby Local Area Co-ordination (LAC)

Derby City Council

Local Area Coordinators have been initially based in two Derby city ward communities and each provides support and assistance to people who may be vulnerable due to age, disability, mental health needs or sensory impairments, but who may not meet the eligibility criteria for specialist services or are not yet at crisis point. They provide two levels of support – information, advice, advocacy and low level support at level 1; level 2 support is a longer-term relationship where they help vulnerable people describe and then pursue their vision of ‘a good life', making best use of the individual and community resources around them, choosing local or non-service solutions where possible.
