Ageing Well: an asset based approach

Wednesday 4 July 2012


This handbook is for those who want to improve life for older people in their community. It introduces and explains an asset-based approach and describes how it has been used in a variety of localities. It also suggests how this approach could be used to create new activities and support for older people in local communities.It is  is based on the work OPM has done with colleagues from Shared Intelligence and the Local Government Association as part of the Ageing Well programme. The content is drawn from the learning from ten pilot sites across the country and from the practice exchange with professionals and older people across those sites.
