Suffolk ABCD Network

Welcome to the Suffolk Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) Network.

  • Do you have a community project that you want to move forward?
  • Are you interested in bringing your community together? 
  • Do you need help to shape a plan for your community?
  • Would you like to meet with other people across Suffolk who are interested in community development?

The ABCD network may be able to help you with this.

ABCD is all about building stronger communities by using the strengths that already exist within them, taking a ‘what’s strong, not what’s wrong’ approach.

The idea is that communities know what they need and will often have the ability to achieve this themselves by using the ‘assets’ that already exist within their community, such a people, places and organisations.

You might like to read some of the case studies we have gathered already of communities using their existing assets to achieve great things.  Please feel free to explore our webpages to learn more about ABCD and our network.

If you would like more information please contact Liz Evans, ABCD Network Co-Ordinator at
