3 First things first… What is an asset based model? InitiateFirst things first… What is an asset based model?In Community Development:“Asset approaches make visible, value and utilise the skills, knowledge, connectionsand potential in a community. They promote capacity, connectedness, reciprocity andsocial capital. The aim is to redress the balance between meeting needs and nurturing the strengths and resources of people and communities.” (Glass Half Full, 2010)In Health & Wellbeing: “Asset working seeks ways to value the assets, nurture and connect them for the benefit of individuals, families and neighbourhoods. Instead of starting with the problems, it starts with what is working, what makes us feel well and what people care about. The more familiar deficit approach starts with needs and deficiencies and designs services to fix the problem and fill the gaps. This creates dependency and people can feel disempowered.” (Morgan et al. eds. Health Assets in a Global Context. Springer 2010).Put in context of a GP meeting a patient with suspected early onset dementia, a needs based model would focus on the illness. An assets based model would look at the assets within the individual. Could be good physical health, supportive family, community groups, good access to heritage sites. Etc.
4 40 Developmental Assets Investigate MAPS stumbled across 40 DA about 5 years ago.
5 History of 40 Developmental Assets InvestigateHistory of 40 Developmental AssetsCreated in 19902.2 million young people over timeMost widely used approach to positive youth development in the United StatesGrounded in extensive research in youth development, resiliency, and prevention.Represent the relationships, opportunities, and personal qualities that young people need to avoid risks and to thrive.Started with young people but now extends beyond and has been adapted to be appropriate for all ages.
6 Reasons for using Assets InvestigateReasons for using AssetsUser friendly.Great tool for training, strategic planning, monitoring, goal setting and evaluation.Makes ‘soft outcomes’ measurableCompliments all sectors.Based on longitudinal researchIt works!

13 InitiateWhat does an Asset based model have to do with outcomes based commissioning?So, back to the original question.Refer back to CPI leaky roof example…
14 Why Commission for Outcomes? InitiateInclusive process that encourages the participation of individuals and communitiesPlain language, common sense and easy to understandFocus on results not process - the ends not the meansAnswers the question “so what?”

19 RADA (Relative Assessment of Developmental Assets) ConsolidateExample of Impact Measurement ToolReal example re individual assets.Can use relevant subgroups/assets for outcomes rather than all 8 subgroups – can be combination of individual and community.User-friendly, user participation, visual.Advocacy example is a diamond – 4 areas – broad or specific as you like.Doesn’t negate other questions that need to be asked.Use for indiviudals/whole service/annual reviews.
