This literature review forms part of the first stage of the Social Connectedness Project. Its aim is:
- To undertake a review of the literature focusing on the link between social isolation and well-being in potential target groups such as the elderly, young people, people with disabilities, and the seriously ill;
- To give an overview of strength-based community development strategies and, in particular, Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD);
- To provide an overview over community development projects that employed such a strategy; and to
- To elaborate possible themes that could encapsulate the spirit of the project.
