South Hams Area Wellbeing or SHAW is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to help enable and educate local individuals to be resilient in their own wellbeing. It is all about compassionate communities connecting local people of all generations with each other and with organisations, practitioners and agencies that can support and facilitate resilience with the main aim of improving lifestyle, knowledge, happiness and health.
SHAW is continuing to develop its role in the local community and ever-changing healthcare landscape. You can contact us directly or through your GP or other appropriate healthcare professionals. Our community builder, Helen, will arrange an appointment with you to discuss your organisation aims and goals.
Asset-based community development (ABCD) is a localised and bottom-up way of strengthening communities through recognising, identifying and harnessing existing ‘assets’ (i.e. things like skills, knowledge, capacity, resources, experience or enthusiasm) that individuals and communities have which can help to strengthen and improve things locally.
Helen will use this approach to help facilitate the empowerment of individuals and communities by helping them to identify and share their strengths and then work together to create their own social innovations across the Kingsbridge District.’
We want to facilitate your journey to improved wellbeing as a group and as individuals. There are no specific rules and no fixed pathways. It’s about what matters to you, not what’s the matter with you.
