Price FREE Get Tickets

Event description

Join us for a dynamic workshop aimed at empowering community organisations through strengths-based approaches. Discover the essence of community development, delve into the art of stakeholder engagement, and unlock the potential of participatory leadership. Learn the value of partnerships and master the skills of harvesting and storytelling to inspire.

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) is a powerful approach to community engagement and development that focuses on abilities and potential, rather than problems and deficits by discovering the resources that are already present in a community. Discovering community strengths is a powerful and productive way to address problems and realise a collective vision.

ABCD is at the centre of a large and growing global movement that considers local assets as primary building blocks of sustainable community development.

By building relationships and creating the space for opportunities to emerge, community members become powerful and are more in control of their own decision making. The key principles will demonstrate how ABCD ensures an inclusive community process and participants will leave the workshop with practical tools to assist communities to help themselves and others discover and mobilise community strengths.

Drawing on the experience of both the participants and the facilitator, participants will leave our workshops with practical tools, skills and ideas on how to:

  • Focus on assets rather than deficiencies
  • Identify and mobilise community assets
  • Identify natural leaders
  • Discover skills of individuals
  • Build and maintain effective partnerships
  • Facilitate group processes
