The Community Plus Service works with people in our communities to achieve positive outcomes and help them to remain independent and in control of their lives.
There is no charge for the Community Plus Service. However, there may be a cost to any activity or service you decide to take part in.

Community Coordinators help you to identify your strengths, by building valued and trusting relationships. They will:
- Support people to stay stronger - by identifying their vision for a good life and their plans how to get there
- Build local partnerships - explore what peer and neighbourhood support and community networking groups there are, and connect individuals to them
- Focus on building relationships - focus our work in the places that need it the most, and encourage people to do more for themselves.
- Build a supportive community - establish what local resources are already in existence, including groups and volunteers, and look at ways we can support them and connect them with local people
- Promote local opportunities - establish where there are gaps in the community and look for opportunities to facilitate new activities.
