Description

We presented the Better Together project in the Westerpark area of Amsterdam, including our research proposal. The project targets three urgent - and connected- urban challenges:
• firstly the increasing social isolation of older migrants and people with psychiatric histories;
• secondly the need of the Westerpark professionals in care and welfare to develop community-based strategies as crucial local resources for the well being of these vulnerable groups;
• thirdly the implementation of the Positive Health-approach as a response to the rising costs in the socio-medical care provision
