Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) for Inclusion
Building the Bridge from Client to Community Member

- Practical strategies to find and engage community assets
- Principles of Community Mobilization
- Discovering Care & Learning Conversations
- Exploring how agencies and communities work together more effectively
- Building an ABCD community partnership
- Practicing with effective tools; circles of support, mapping relationships and harmonising the things worth doing
