Local Area Coordination support to be rolled out across entirety of Derby

Not often we get to feature an actual council news page here, so this is doubly nice –

Following a successful bid to Central Government, Derby City Council has been awarded funding to help scale its Local Area Coordination offer across the entire city.

The proposal highlighted the successes of Local Area Coordination since it was launched in Derby in 2012 and proposed the ways in which the service could be harnessed across the city. The service will now be able to offer an all-age service.

Given the current pandemic, the Council also applied for additional funding in order to support the city’s most vulnerable residents and help to ease the pressure on healthcare services. The service will work closely with the Derby COVID Community Response Hub in order to support urgent needs and coordinate residents who are eager to help their neighbours.
