  • Personalisation & Prevention

    1. 1. Unlocking our Imaginations Talk for Northamptonshire: June 2010 © Simon Duffy. Rights Reserved. The author must be cited if images or slides are used
    2. 2. Are we investing in services or in people & communities?
    3. 3. Putting money into fixed services often guarantees waste and inefficiency?
    4. 4. When people are in control they make better use of their own ‘real wealth’
    5. 5. When we aim at something positive - like citizenship - we grow support, community and energy
    6. 6. The best forms of support often don’t look like support - information, connections, access
    7. 7. 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
