A huge welcome to Jane Tonks (Local Area Coordination Manager, Swansea) and Jon, Dan and Ronan – the first Local Area Coordinators in Swansea……. and Wales!!!
So excited to welcome you to the Local Area Coordination Network family.
Hi, I’m Jane and I am the Local Area Coordination Implementation Manager here in Swansea. We have just recruited our first three Local Area Coordinators, the first in Wales, and they will be starting in post on June 1st.
I feel really excited, and a little nervous, about getting to this stage after many months of preparation, but I know that members of the Local Area Coordination Network are there to help with vast amounts of experience for us to draw on!
What has struck me most about this work since I started last November is the positivity of everyone involved and how refreshed and powerful that can make you feel. I guess it mirrors what Local Area Coordination can mean to people and communities – with support and friendship there is no limit to what we can do!
