Consultancy Services

Our consultancy services help people work through complex and challenging issues

  • How can people who have been defined as the problem secure the power to redefine the problem?
  • How can people return to community life from prison or other forms on institutionalization be supported and how can we support local residents to actively receive them?
  • How do you create pro-social behaviour in neighbourhoods, schools, prisons?
  • How can ethical businesses go beyond writing cheques, or painting schools to genuine Corporate Social Responsibility?
  • How can our institutions use their resources to build socially and economically vibrant places?
  • How can we shift social care/social work away from case management towards community social work?
  • How do we shift our organization from being deficit oriented to be capacity oriented and asset based?

Our goals are:

  1. To establish a collaborative problem solving relationship.
  2. To support our commissioning organisations to solve problems so they stay solved.
  3. To ensure attention is given to both community building and person-centred practices
  4. To develop commitment among all stakeholders to take the solution to action and increase capacity for implementation.

We will work together through complex and challenging issues like: creating pro-social behaviour, supporting return to community life, shifting from being deficit oriented to capacity oriented and asset based.

Which organizations use our services?

Any organisation transitioning to a more community-driven, place-based way of working that is facing the challenges of transitioning from classical deficit thinking, top-down/hierarchical practice or traditional structures will find our consultancy services of genuine and practical support. Organisations committed to forging collaborative and respectful relationship with communities but who recognise they have a tendency (as does every organization) to revert to ‘deficit approaches’ will also benefit.

We work with businesses, health authorities, local authorities, civil service departments, police departments, fire services, social services, voluntary, community and faith sector organisations, as well as directly with communities to support their change process. We also work at State, Federal and National levels of Government.
