Our social research intern’s Evaluation Report of the ABCD approach in reducing social isolation

Honor Horsfall, Time to Shine’s social research intern, produced an Evaluation Report of the ABCD approach in reducing social isolation.

The report looks at two Time to Shine delivery partners and gives a valuable insight into the experiences of people participating in the projects. 

The overarching aim of this research is to explore the benefit and appropriateness of an Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) approach in reducing social isolation in older people. 

ABCD is a developmental approach that focuses on enhancing a community’s existing assets. It seeks to foster community led participation and build social capital by linking across sector networks and sharing local knowledge and resources.  

This means that people contribute to and are valued by their community. 

We’re delighted to be able to share this research with you and thank Honor for the hard work she put into it whilst she was here.
