Personalisation & Prevention Personalisation & Prevention Presentation Transcript

  • Unlocking our Imaginations Talk for Northamptonshire: June 2010 © Simon Duffy. Rights Reserved. The author must be cited if images or slides are used
  • Are we investing in services or in people & communities?
  • Putting money into fixed services often guarantees waste and inefficiency?
  • When people are in control they make better use of their own ‘real wealth’
  • When we aim at something positive - like citizenship - we grow support, community and energy
  • The best forms of support often don’t look like support - information, connections, access
  • There are eight degrees of charity, one higher than the other. The highest degree, exceeded by none, is that of the person who assists a poor Jew by providing him with a gift or loan or by accepting him into a business partnership or by helping him find employment - in a word, by putting him where he can dispense with other people's aid. With reference to such aid, it is said, “You shall strengthen him, be he a stranger or a settler, he shall live with you” (Lev. 25:35), which means strengthen him in such manner that his falling into want is prevented. Maimonides - 12th Century
