A note from from Tom Richards,
Local Area Coordination Network Manager

Hello and welcome to the Local Area Coordination Network Newsletter!

The sun is here, and with it comes a cautious sense of optimism that better times lie ahead. The summer is a really exciting period for us in the Local Area Coordination Network, as it’s the time of year we convene our National Gathering. This event brings together Local Area Coordination teams from across England and Wales, to share our passion for the approach and to learn from each other. This means that as innovations or means of adapting to, and overcoming, national challenges are developed in one council, councils across the entire Network benefit.

To find out more about Local Area Coordination, and our wonderful Network, please visit, or if you would like to chat about bringing Local Area Coordination to your area, please contact

Have a great end of the week and enjoy the newsletter!

Tom Richards
