The Social Context focuses on building and using a multi-faceted network of people (a community of practice), connecting sites across the UK and Europe, to explore ways of using the idea of resilience to tackle social inequalities.
Our community partner, Kim Aumann wanted to know how well our community of practice was managing to connect so she asked our members: If, and how, might it have helped to be part of a larger community thinking and doing resilience based work together? Here’s a flavour of what they said: Yes it helps.
- sharing ideas and understandings, knowledge and experience reassures and reaffirms the work we are doing at our own sites
- seeing and reflecting on the bigger picture and how others are using resilience
- exploring resilience with others who understand the content and context challenges our thinking and ideas because we test it with others in the group
- saves time being all together to share our practice and thinking
- having a safe environment to share questions and experiences
- having time for structured reflection.
