    Asset-based approaches in service settings: striking a balance

    Asset-based approaches are about recognising and making the most of people’s strengths. A strong moral and ethical case is emerging for a health and care system which starts with what matters to individuals and recognises the contribution that strong, resilient communities can make to supporting health and wellbeing. There is now growing interest in how such approaches might be delivered in practice within mainstream services to realise these outcomes, in light of growing inequalities in health. 

    At this event we shared the findings from our research which has explored the work of mainstream statutory services embedding asset-based principles in their approach to service delivery and which has uncovered further opinion and thinking on the potential of an asset-based way of working within public services in Scotland. The Forum also provided an opportunity to hear practical examples of asset-based working in a small number of services and discussed the findings, recommendations and implications of the research for practice and service planning and delivery.
