Please tell us why you are joining ISQOLS:
I have worked in community development and health and wellbeing for over 20 years and have developed some community led models that I wish to develop further and share with like minded people. I want to develop a grass roots system that works with the U.N 17 Sustainable Goals and enables communities to become part of the movement and often through asset based community development practices. Quality of life for individuals and communities can be enhanced when they feel that can influence positively ,often in small but significant ways. Helping the environment through better re-cycling, supporting nature and creating small conservation projects, can enhance wellbeing for people living with conditions they enjoy distraction from. Quality of life has become challenged by many pressures of today's fast moving society and finding small and affordable ways to enjoy life and feel connected to each other is ever more important. Enhancing QOL has become a key aspect of community development and an area I have had excellent opportunities to explore and act upon these last years.
Please describe your area of research and interest
Community led approaches to enhancing their QOL through connectivity , empowerment and creative approaches to utilise resources that re local and relevant to the communities and individuals living in those communities.

New communities are being created with increased building of new houses in large estates ,often with no infra-structure for a long time. I have worked with these impacts and supported 'mean time' communities to evolve and strengthen.

Self-care and community models for enhancing health and well-being through innovative , person-centred tools for the community environment.
