Describe the goal of this initiative: what are we trying to achieve?
Lead by Self Advocates from Surrey/Delta who will engage with citizens and groups who are champions for inclusion in developing a vision for their community, and to utilize creativity to imagine the ideal community conditions for inclusion. Incorporate stories, pictures, words and video into an Asset Mapping Guide to Enhance Community Inclusion and showcase the community inclusion asset information collected at public information sessions.
What has been the impact of your solution to date?
What has been the impact of our solution to date?
To date, asset mapping has been used as a powerful tool to identify resources that can support the enhancement of social inclusion. It assists in the future mapping of strategies with the natural strengths that already exist in communities. Asset mapping has proven to lay the foundation for forward planning and can provide a benchmark from which to measure progress over time, it’s also helpful in understanding key regional systems and linkages. We are proposing to emulate this sucessful initative in the cities of Surrey/Delta.
What is your projected impact over the next five years?
What is our projected impact over the next five year?
We foresee the Asset Mapping process becoming a catalyst for creating partnerships with others with common interests that the Self Advocates involvd in this project and others will mobilize into a more formalized social inclusion movement in the Surrey/Delta area. The aim is to have the asset maps created become the cornerstone of a variety of future inclusion development activities.
What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?
What barriers might hinder the success of our project? What is our plan to overcome them?
The size and multitude of the micro-communities within the cities of Surrey & Delta may hinder the progress of the project due to the time that will be necessary to adequately complete a thorough asset map of each community.
We will be thoughtful and thorough in our engagement, allowing sufficient time to complete each micro-community and work collaboratively with other interested /like-minded groups in the regional implementation of the asset mapping project.
