How do we move from services that access the community to services that are a valued part of their community?
Closing the gap between services and community, how do we move from services that access the community to services that are a valued part of their community?
At KeyRing we've noticed that there is amazing work happening across services to connect people with their community. There are also great community approaches that draw on local skills and assets.
These two approaches are complimentary but somehow not quite joined up.
We'd love to discuss approaches and explore where these two approaches work well together. We want to celebrate and learn from each other.
We are inviting organisations from across the world to connect - we want to celebrate and learn from each other.
Our first get together will be led by Heather Calvo from Neighbourhood Networks. Neighbourhood Networks is a charity based in Scotland that supports people to live active and healthy lives within their local communities. It is an approach based on KeyRing Living Support Networks and recognises the value of peer support and community connection.
Heather will be sharing their experiences of the Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) approach that they are currently investigating.
Participants will be invited to share their own experiences and suggest topics for future conversations.
This forum is open to everyone but would be of particular interest to community-based providers of services and advocates of ABCD approaches.
Please join us online:
Date: Thursday 22nd June
