Their website says: “We upset traditional service models of ‘needs based provision’ and established a new model of ‘needs as assets’. We learnt how to unlock the abundant pre-existing resources in communities and helped them build resilience and grow protective networks for their members.

Our work was profiled nationally and recognised as leading a new way of ‘doing’ services and reducing reliance on shrinking public services.”
