ABCD Europe

Asset-based community development in action, all over Europe.

Cormac Russell addresses the NHS, on his vision for a healthier co-created future

Our well-being is decisively more determined by our community assets than any other health and well being determinants. Tragically community building hardly features as a priority in the current sickness model. And so, for example, Older people are dying of loneliness in a sea of neighbourliness that does not know how to express itself. While it is true to say we are creeping towards a change in focus in this regard, it is also economically and morally a pivotal time where the need to accelerate this portion of the public health agenda and to elevate the status and the function of 'connected communities' as agents of health production, has become all at once both critical and possible. Everyone's health and well being depends on this fundamental shift; this fundamental depends on everyone choosing to co-create a shared health seeking future.
