Quantifying social capital
“It remains the best available method of quantifying social capital in order to inform funding and other planning decisions. It’s a hugely cost-effective way for making the area and its developments transparent to all.”
Connecting residents, businesses and community groups
“We have been very lucky to benefit from such a talented team taking a deep interest in our area and ‘adopting’ Church Street as if it was their own.
AKOU's initiative helped greatly in connecting the residents, businesses and community groups and has enabled us all to leverage valuable social capital to the benefit of the whole neighbourhood.”
