Developing local area co-ordination in Scotland: supporting individuals and families in their own communities

Following its development and evaluation in Western Australia, local area co‐ordination (LAC) has been included as an integral part of the strategy for people with learning disabilities in Scotland. LAC responds to the wishes of people with learning disabilities and family carers for more direct access to services and for continuity and co‐ordination of support. Local area co‐ordinators (LACs) work directly with individuals and families to help them find the information and local supports they need.
