Social Value of Local Area Coordination in Derby

Author: Hannah Marsh

This analysis, commissioned by Think Local Act Personal, was undertaken to measure the impact of Local Area Coordination across Derby City Council in order to show the social value to residents, as well as the cost benefits for further expansion to 17 council wards.

Local Area Coordination supports residents in the community to 'get a life, not a service'. People questioned in the evaluation reported improved health and wellbeing by having less social isolation, increased confidence, independence and control over their lives.

An earlier report commissioned by Thurrock Council, using the same analysts produced the same outcome.

The analysis for Derby Council took place in November 2015 and assessed the impact of 10 Local Area Coordinators. Analysis of Thurrock Council took place in July 2015 and assessed the impact of 9 Local Area Coordinators.
