TLAP’s first paper on the asset-based area made the case for adopting an asset-based approach to care and support. This new version is action oriented, with practical examples of councils, such as Leeds, City of York, Swindon, Kirklees and Hammersmith and Fulham, along with organisations including Choice Support and Wiltshire Centre for Independent Living that are taking practical steps to shift in the direction of an building asset-based communities.

  3. First steps
  4. Local areas putting the asset-based actions into practice
