Community assets and services

Make favourite

Include women, older persons, children, persons with disabilities and persons from ethnic and cultural minorities to map community assets and services, to find out which ones matter to them.

Inclusion considerations:

  • Meet at an accessible venue to map community assets and services. Provide assistance with transport to the meeting for those who need it.

  • Map specific health and rehabilitation services which are relevant for persons with disabilities, older persons and women (e.g. rehabilitation providers, therapists, pre-and post natal health services).

  • Map community public services such as schools, public administration, police and justice, and social services.

  • Discuss the accessibility of community assets and services during disaster related to different hazards.
