Case studies on asset based approaches to health


Assets in Action GCPH

This report is based on 19 case studies of projects using asset-based approaches for health improvement, including many community-led projects.  Together, the studies show that asset-based approaches increase social capital, skills, confidence, aspirations, choice and partnership working. 

Anecdotal evidence from the research also points to the economic value of asset-based approaches and one of the report's recommendations is for projects to be supported to use appropriate evaluation frameworks measuring "softer outcomes".  To read the report's other recommendations and all 19 case studies, visit the GCPH website or download the report directly here
