Animating Assets is a project that explored what difference working in an asset-based way made in communities and services.
In the second of our series on asset-based community development, Dr Jennifer McLean, Public Health Programme Manager at the Glasgow Centre for Population Health, blogs about the Animating Assets project. She examines what they learned from the project.
Adopting an asset-based approach builds on strengths and optimism, but it also reflects a commitment to work and operate differently – involving people, taking risks, sharing power and unlocking the potential or people, places and organisations to work together more effectively.
