Asset Based Community Development

Asset-based community development (or ABCD) is founded on the idea that change will only happen if we identify and mobilise the gifts and capacities of local people and the social, physical and economic resources of a local place.  It is an approach that seeks to build strong, sustainable communities from the ‘inside out,’ through forging and nurturing relationships of care and creativity. 

ABCD potentially transforms individuals and communities and can help churches to reconnect with those in the parish.

Al Barrett, Vicar of Hodge Hill Church in Birmingham facilitated a stimulating day about ABCD on June 23rd 2014. Please click here to download a copy of his presentation on that day.
