Asset Based Community Development (ABCD): A community focussed practice for local government
We support local governments on their journey to increase community participation and encourage community led initiatives. All local governments are required to provide community engagement, strengthen and support community leadership and build sustainable relationships. Taking an active role to increase communication, and understanding the needs and opportunities within your municipality provides a platform for strong foundations and greater economic prosperity, liveability and creativity.
Asset Based Community Development:
- changes the relationship between a local government and communities
- explores community possibilities
- focuses on ‘what’s strong, not what’s wrong’
- is place based, locally focused,
- built on community
- leadership and relationship driven.
Through ABCD we move from consultation to partnership.
“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”
