‘Ageing Well’ was a government-funded programme of work in 2011-12 which aimed to take an asset-based approach to supporting older people’s wellbeing. OPM* undertook work in different localities around England, using variations on this core agenda:
|Time||Welcome and introduction to the workshop|
|30 minutes||Your experience (facilitated discussion in groups)|
|30 minutes||Mapping our personal ‘assets’ and what they mean for us day to day (facilitated discussion in groups)|
|45 minutes||Mapping our collective local ‘assets’ and what they mean for us day to day (facilitated discussion in groups, using A1 printed maps, pens and sticky dots)|
|30 minutes||Generating ideas for change (facilitated discussion in groups)|
Could we help people get more involved in local clubs and activities?
