Empowering Communities

Valuing patients, family members, carers, volunteers and support groups as a vital and contributing resource in health and social care

How do we empower communities?

We draw from the principles from positive psychology and Asset Based Community Development approaches to actively recognise the strengths and resources in a community that support people to become more involved in their own health and care, and help enhance the wider system.

"An asset is any factor or resource which enhances the ability of individuals, communities and populations to maintain and sustain health and well-being. These assets can operate at the level of the individual, family or community as protective and promoting factors to buffer against life’s stresses" - Antony Morgan, NICE
