Asset mapping

We can work with local people to help them identify and recognise assets within their communities.

An asset is any of the following:

  • The practical skills, knowledge, talents and networks of local people
  • The passions and interests of local people that give them energy for change
  • The networks and connections known as social capital in a community, including friendships and neighbourliness
  • The effectiveness of local community and voluntary associations
  • The resources of public, private and voluntary organisations that are available to support a community
  • The physical and economic resources of a place that enhance wellbeing

We use participative and inclusive approaches to involve people and focus on the asset-based ethos which is about recognising what is good in an area as a foundation to build upon.

You can see some examples of creative asset mapping HERE.
