think local act personal's (TALP) first paper on the asset-based area made the case for adopting an asset-based approach to care and support.
This new version, action orientated report shares examples of where councils such as Leeds, City of York, Swindon, Kirklees and Hammersmith and Fulham, along with organisations including Choice Support and Wiltshire Centre for Independent Living are taking practical steps to shift in the direction of building asset-based communities.
Whilst the examples featured differ in form and scope, all of them demonstrate the imagination, commitment and resolve needed to make better places for and with people. This should inspire and inform others to make the change to asset-based areas or to continue and redouble the work they have already started.
This report also explores:
- What is whole-system change and why do we need it?
- What will we all do differently in an asset-based area?
- First steps
- Local areas putting the asset-based actions into practice
The resource will interest people working in councils, those who run organisations that provide support, and people who draw on care and support, including organisations that represent their views and interests.
