Asset Based Community Development (ABCD)

“What’s strong, not what’s wrong”

ABCD stands for Asset based Community Development.  It is community-led development and focuses on the assets and strengths which already exist within a community and making connections between these in order to strengthen communities.

ABCD explores the people, places, organisations and services within their communities, the strengths or gifts that they have, and how these can contribute to developing ideas and projects within a community.

This short video gives an overview of what ABCD is.

The leading organisation on ABCD in Europe is Nurture Development. You can visit their website to find out more by using the link below.
