Has anyone got any experience of using asset based approaches for health and care? The Department of Health/NHS England are beginning to look at this and it seems to me that it would be a waste of a lot of time and resources if they don’t build on existing knowledge and experience.
It would be good to be able to get some information that could be passed on to DH to show them that they should start here rather than set up anything new.
Not me personally but I know from first hand discussions that Torbay Community Dev Trust (headed by Simon Shebersky) have started a suite of asset based health and care interventions (incl social prescribing, and crisis management) in partnership with the NHS and local govt in Torquay.
Also Somerstown Community Assn based nr London Kings Cross (headed by Sarah Elie) have an employment advice hub which delivers lots of services which overlap job-seeking and social care support and is also built on the asset based methods of SCA.
