Description

Hilary Cottam:

"At the heart of these new approaches to health, work, to growing up and to ageing is a switch from a 20th century transactional approach – let me pass you the sticking plaster – to a 21st century approach that stands beside you and works with you to help you grow. Relational Welfare supports people to grow their own capabilities, the most important of which turns out to be the human bonds between us: our relationships. In our current systems everyone suffers – those who need support but cannot access it and the professionals who work within systems that constrain good work. Relational welfare is an affordable approach for everybody: professionals, communities and the vulnerable." (http://www.hilarycottam.com/projects/relational-welfare/)
