Sketch of Trevor
Asset Based Consulting

Asset Based Consulting is a partnership that specialises in consultancy support for local government, the NHS, community and voluntary organisations. They use an 'appreciative' or an 'assets' approach to their work.
"In practice this means that we start with what is working in an organisation or a community," said Trevor Hopkins, one of the partners. "Individuals, families, communities and organisations have the capacity, skills, knowledge, connections and the potential to develop in a positive direction," added Jayne Hopkins. "In an asset based approach the glass is half-full, not half-empty."
As well as detailing the consultancy support that Trevor and Jayne can offer, the website also contains resources that will be useful to anyone wanting to take an asset approach to leadership, improvement or development.

People Centred Public Health

Just published by The Policy Press and written by my colleagues and friends Jane South, Judy White and Mark Gamsu, 'People-Centred Public Health' examines how members of the public can be involved in delivering health improvement, primarily as volunteers or lay health workers.

People-Centred Public Health

Jane South, Judy White and Mark Gamsu
The Policy Press (2012) ISBN 9781447305309

People-Centred Public Health examines how members of the public can be involved in delivering health improvement, primarily as volunteers or lay health workers. With a foreword by Professor Sir Michael Marmot and Dr Mike Grady, this timely book draws on a major study of lay engagement in public health, using case studies and real life examples to provide a comprehensive and accessible overview of policy, practice and research in this area. In an economic and political climate where there is renewed interest in the role of the citizen, the authors challenge old orthodoxies in public health and build a coherent argument for radical change in the way public agencies support lay action.

A presentation from the Community Assets & Poverty seminar, which was jointly organised by SCDC and the Poverty Alliance in May 2012.  The event was supported by Health Scotland and featured presentations from Lynne Friedli, Andy Milne and Ian Cooke.  It asked: How do we achieve a balance between supporting communities to release their potential, use the assets they have at their disposal, and retain a focus on the root structural causes of problems that many communities and individuals face?
