Publication cover


This report follows on from a 2012 evaluation of local area coordination in New Zealand. The primary aim is to help key stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of the New Model Demonstration Project by providing information about how activities are working and identifying issues for further consideration.

While recognising the value of local area coordination for disabled people, the Ministry wanted to investigate how to increase use of this initiative by disabled people and their whānau, and to identify appropriate delivery arrangements beyond the Demonstration Project.

The evaluation was conducted in late 2013 by Evalue Research and involved semi-structured interviews with 30 disabled people and whānau using local area coordination in the Western and Eastern Bay of Plenty, 46 other key stakeholders, a document review, literature scan and analysis of administrative data.
