North West Masterclass Collaborative: How Can Strengths Based Working Lead to Healthier and Happier Communities

In this Masterclass, colleagues from Bromford Lab, an innovation think tank working within social housing, will bring together a range of contributors who are taking radical action to improve community wellbeing and mental health.

“Strengths” is a concept that encompasses many aspects of who people are. Strengths include character traits, talents, and abilities. When you recognise, develop, and use them, you can take forward action and make real change. You are empowered to live well and thrive in spite of mental illness and other challenges.

Sharing their ground breaking Neighbourhood Coaching model, the session will invite attendees to solve problems in new and radical ways by reframing the problem as opportunities - building bridges between the community, health, housing and social care.

This event is for everyone who has the courage or wants to find the courage, to break out of traditional ways of working and thinking, and work with communities in a more experimental ‘safe to fail’ way that encourages innovation.


Speakers include:

  • Paul Taylor, Facilitator, Innovator and Designer, Bromford Labs

Paul leads innovation and design at Bromford, a housing association of 44,000 homes in Central England.
