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.

Thurrock Local Area Co-ordination

Thurrock Council

Local Area Coordination helps vulnerable people in Thurrock find support in their local communities. It forms part of Thurrock's Building Positive Futures programme, which aims to support older and vulnerable people to live well; to increase their health and wellbeing; improve housing and neighbourhoods and create stronger, more hospitable and age-friendly communities. LAC was selected as an approach because more than 20 years of evaluation of its use in Western Australia has shown it to lead to positive outcomes for individuals, build community resilience and reduce demand for formal services.

STEPS to Stay Independent

East Sussex County Council

STEPS to Stay Independent is a short term housing support service provided to older people in East Sussex, enabling them to retain or regain independent living skills so they can continue to live in their own home or move to one that better meets their needs.

Support at Home

British Red Cross

British Red Cross (BRC) Support at Home services offer short-term practical and emotional support at home to help people regain their independence following a stay in hospital. Evaluations of Red Cross preventative services have found that these services improved the quality of life for people who use services, contributed to cost savings and a reduction in use of formal/informal care.

Neighbourhood Network Schemes (NNS)

Leeds City Council

Neighbourhood Network Schemes (NNS) are community based, locally led organisations that enable older people over 60 across Leeds to live independently and to take an active role within their own communities. Most are small, independent organisations run largely by and for older people, and many have a significant amount of input from volunteers drawn from the local community.

Community Bridge Builders

Halton Borough Council

The Community Bridge Building team is a generic service and Bridge Builders work with adults who have a disability and are socially isolated to connect them with services in their communities. It began in 2007 when adult day care services were restructured, moving from a day centre model (two centres in Widnes and Runcorn) to one where people are supported to take part in activities and voluntary roles in the community. Day services now support only those with the most complex needs. Community Bridge Builders aim to: promote wellbeing and healthy living; encourage equal opportunities for all; identify support needs and overcome them; enable people to make their own choices; promote Independence and reduce isolation; enable people to have a valued role within their community.

Sure Start to Later Life

Halton Borough Council

Following workshops held with older people, who said they wanted an information service specifically aimed at them and that that they wanted information officers to make home visits, Halton Borough Council worked with them to create this service, based on a previous national model.
