Building on the Strengths in your Community

Wednesday 14th November 2018

Benefits: The session offers you tools as local organisations and community activists in your endeavours to build sustainable, resilient and healthy communities.

Course information The training provides an introduction to Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) as a perspective that builds on capacities rather than on needs assessment to support long-term change at the local level. It hands community development to those in the community.

The course:

  • introduces asset-based approaches that recognise local gifts, capacities, skills and knowledge
  • outlines key ABCD tools to put into practice
  • defines ‘connectors’ and ‘gappers’
  • explains how to become part of the ABCD community.

Date: Wednesday 14th November 2018

Time: 10.00am to 3.00pm

Venue: Certacs House, Skelmersdale WN8 8AZ (contact organisers to confirm)
