The Aspen 2 Generation Model

Our Model of Care is how Crann provides our services to you and your family. It helps inform the decisions we make together to ensure the best possible outcome for your goals. The Model of Care we use is based on a model called the Aspen 2 Generation approach (shortened to “2Gen”).

Crann is the first European charity to adopt the Aspen 2Gen approach. Through this approach, we build family well-being by intentionally and simultaneously working with children and the adults in their lives together.

The key areas we have built our Model of Care around are:

Our Model of Care in Action

The 2Gen approach puts your family at the centre of our services and policies. We will work with your family to identify goals and then work together to create pathways to achieving them. Life is a journey. What is appropriate for you now may not be 5 years from now. So we adapt this plan as your life progresses.

We offer specific programmes and services for adults or children with a neuro-physical disability, their parents and siblings. 

Let’s Start a Conversation

If you would like to join Crann, or would like to have a conversation about how we can help you or your family, we’d love to hear from you.

The Aspen Institute is one of America’s leading think tanks. It gathers diverse, nonpartisan thought leaders, creatives, scholars, and members of the public to address some of the world’s most complex problems.

“The two-generation approach involves identifying the factors that undermine a family’s overall wellbeing, then working with the family to solve problems, access new resources, and sharpen existing skills.”
