  4. 4. Health “Health is more than an absence of physical disease, it is a state of complete physical, mental and social we"being” (World Health Organisation, 1948) “Health is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living.

  5. 5. Wellbeing “A positive state of mind and body, feeling safe and able to cope, with a sense of connection with people, communities and the wider environment” Department of Health, 2009 “A positive physical, social and mental state, it is not just the absence of pain, discomfort and incapacity. It requires that basic needs are met, that individuals have a sense of purpose, that they feel able to achieve important personal goals and participate in society. It is enhanced by conditions that include supportive personal relationships, strong and inclusive communities, good health, financial and personal security, rewarding employment and a healthy and attractive environment” Defra, 2007Wednesday, 25 April 12

  10. 10. The Public Health challenge • Chief Medical Officer (2009) – a greater focus on what creates health, alongside traditional approaches to preventing illness. • Marmot Review (2010) – “creating conditions for individuals to take control of their own lives.” • Public Health White Paper (2011) - improving health through greater emphasis on well-being and prevention, building people’s self esteem, confidence and resilience,’ shifting power to local communities and tackling the determinants of health. • The asset approach provides an approach for councils and their partners to respond to these challenge.Wednesday, 25 April 12
  11. 11. Asset based approachesWednesday, 25 April 12
  12. 12. The principles Assets: any resource, skill or knowledge which enhances the ability of individuals, families and neighbourhoods to sustain health and wellbeing. Instead of starting with the problems, we start with what is working, and what people care about. Networks, friendships, self esteem and feelings of personal and collective effectiveness are good for our wellbeingWednesday, 25 April 12
  13. 13. Values Identify and make visible health-enhancing assets in a community See citizens and communities as the co-producers of health and well-being as well as the recipients of services Value what works well Identify what has the potential to improve health and well- being Empower communities to control their futures and create tangible resourcesWednesday, 25 April 12
  14. 14. Identifying assets The actual and potential assets of • individuals (head, heart and hands) • associations • organisations Primary, secondary and potential assets Physical, economic and cultural assetsWednesday, 25 April 12
  15. 15. Rights, discrimination and social justice As well as having (and being) assets, people still have rights - this is not about ignoring rights. We recognise that inequalities in life chances, health and opportunities are rooted in the ways that our healthcare, education, employment and other systems operate which results in discrimination. We seek an assets approach which enhances, not distracts from, social justice.Wednesday, 25 April 12
