Abstract IntroductionUtilising asset based approaches which recognise and value the strengths of individuals and communities is an important element of our local place based transformation programme ESBT. AimTo identify effective sustainable asset based approaches to reducing alcohol harm in communities most likely to experience health inequalities.Methods20 residents were recruited from the most deprived parts of the county, with a focus on people who wouldn't normally participate in community consultation. Through an alcohol inquiry, over 12 sessions, residents explored what is good about their community and some of the challenges, with an emphasis on the role of alcohol. Residents also listened to and questioned experts in the field of alcohol. From this new insight the group created their own recommendations for sharing with local organisations and are now working with agencies to implement joint action plans that reduce alcohol harm using asset based approaches.ResultsResidents have formed an independent community organisation and started working with agencies on specific issues including the Licensing Authority.We have developed an agency partnership with links to residents to ensure sustainability.Final report with recommendations and short/ longer term actions agreed between residents and local agencies.ConclusionAsset based approaches which utilise insight drawn from marginalised groups, and support communities to work with agencies to identify local solutions are likely to be effective in addressing alcohol related harm.Using these approaches has generated promising practice in enabling the rapid development of sustainable co-working between residents and agencies.Funded by PHE.
