Animating Assets learning event


Final learning event 19th November 2015 9:30 - 2pm (including lunch) Scottish Youth Theatre, Glasgow

Animating Assets was a collaborative programme facilitated by SCDC and GCPH. The programme ran from January 2014 – September 2015 and aimed to support the use of asset-based approaches with a range of health and social wellbeing issues in Scotland. Animating Assets adopted a process of co-creation, experimentation and action research, through which our goal was to produce new evidence of the impact made by assets based interventions on health and wellbeing.

We have had gained great insight and many positive experiences working with communities. We have also generated some interesting evidence on taking an asset-based approach in four local areas, working on particular health issues, with multiple stakeholders.

We want to tell you about our findings, hear about your experiences of working in an asset-based way and discuss some of the questions arising from all of our experiences. In particular, we are keen to explore: How we can ensure that asset-based approaches form the foundation of the support we plan and deliver in Scotland’s communities.

At the event, we will hear from people living and working in the four communities; as well as members of the Animating Assets team. Time will, also, be dedicated to discussions about how all of us can take asset-based approaches forward. Copies of the final report will also be available. We would be delighted if you were able to join us and share your experiences.

Places are by invitation only, and booking is required. To book a place please contact Alex MacDonald by 12th November, at or 0141 248 1924.
