Homeless Link: London Supported Accommodation and Resettlement Workers’ Community of Practice

Thursday, September 23, 2021

Strengths-Based Approaches focus on the positive qualities of the people we work alongside, the organisation and the local community. Rather than addressing the ‘problems’ of the individual, they look to get to know the person as a whole to identify strengths and goals that the person wishes to work towards.

“Too many people undervalue what they are and overvalue what they are not!”

Strengths-Based Approaches focus on the positive qualities of the people we work alongside, the organisation and the local community. Rather than addressing the ‘problems’ of the individual, they look to get to know the person as a whole to identify strengths and goals that the person wishes to work towards. They also place the individual at the heart of the process, allowing them to direct and define their own support. Most importantly, being strengths-based is a holistic approach; it is something you are rather than something you do.

Many organisations are interested in the idea of being strengths-based or asset-based but it's not always clear what it means to work in this way. As being strengths-based is individual to each person and each organisation.

How do Supported Accommodation and Resettlement services in London implement this approach. What works well?

Join our conversation and network with your peers from across London to share good practice, explore solutions and ideas around implementing Strength Based Approach in your work.
