Individuals and groups which exist on the edges of society are deemed ‘marginalised’ whether through poverty, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, migration status, addiction, victimisation, social class or a rural location.
Too often services try and address their needs by providing ‘extra’ support to meet the needs of people who are judged not have the capacity to solve their own problems.
Health on the margins challenges this view and provides an opportunity for professionals across health and other sectors to look at marginalisation through a positive and aspirational lens:
What are those living at the margins already doing to address their problems?
How can professionals avoid hindering self-help efforts?
How can individual and public assets and capacity be directed to people on the margins while avoiding patronising and colonising people’s vulnerability?
Above all, what can we learn from each other’s practice?
