Aberdeenshire Signposting Project (Update)

Examples of Practice

The Aberdeenshire Signposting Project works by linking people to local organisations, services, clubs and societies in their community that address issues in a person’s life.  ASP has a specific focus on improving quality of life and promoting positive mental health, with a spin-off aim being to prevent the poor health and wellbeing that can otherwise result.  ASP was seeing clients time and time again whose problem was essentially one of loneliness and isolation but who wanted simple companionship rather than anything more complex.

The full Aberdeenshire Signposting Project Example of Practice (Update) is available here. It is an update of the original Example of Practice published in 2013, which can be accessed here
