International Initiative for Disability Leadership (IIDL) Learning Exchange – summary report

The IIDL Exchange took place at the end of May with the Local Area Coordination Network, Thurrock Council and Inclusive Neighbourhoods running a session around Local Area Coordination in England and Wales with a focus on the transformation of services.

Key messages from the session that were shared at the later IIDL Network meeting in Sweden were:

  • Local Area Coordination has a sound and growing international evidence base. We are all on the same reform journey with same challenges
  • Power of relationships
  • The focus on a good life, a positive vision, strengths
  • Importance of shifting power from systems to citizens
  • Integrity and authenticity – person by person, family by family, place by place
  • Leadership – how develop tomorrow’s leaders?
  • Imagine if…….Possibilities, possibilities, possibilities
