Making Life Better

Are you feeling alone, or in need or some support or help?

Local Area Coordinators are now working in the areas below to help people find a way to make their life better with the help and support of their communities.

We can:

  • Take time to listen and get to know you
  • Help you visualise a good life
  • help you access relevant information and advice
  • help you discover your strengths, skills, talents and abilities
  • help you stay strong and be heard
  • aim to find practical solutions to issues
  • support you to become more connected and active in your community.

The areas we currently cover are:

  • Slaithwaite & Marsden
  • Shelley, Kirkburton and Skelmanthorpe
  • Ravensthorpe, Scout hill, Pilgram & Becketts
  • Dalton, Rawthorpe & Moldgreen

There is no eligibility criteria, just the person has to live within those areas. We walk alongside anybody who feels they need our support.
