Engaging Community Assets

A Scottish Government funded pilot project to build on the “Essence of General Practice” project conceived by RCGP Scotland, in partnership with Assist Social Capital and the International Futures Forum.

With an increased focus on better health and social care integration and an abundance of social issues in communities across Scotland, this initiative aims to bring a new approach to not only determine the needs within each individual community but to focus on the positive capability and capacity of that community and empower them to develop services (using social enterprises) to improve the social capital and, thus overall well being of the community.
