An A-Z of ABCD Workshop (SCVO)

10 July 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

When considering your local community, do you take the ‘glass half full’ or ‘glass half empty’ approach?

Asset-based community development (ABCD) is a bottom-up way of working with communities that focuses on community strengths and assets rather than on deficits and problems.

ABCD focuses on the half-full glass. The half-empty glass represents the notion that communities are deficient and have many needs. The half-full glass represents the notion that communities (and the people who live there) have many strengths, capabilities and assets.

This workshop will introduce you to the principles of ABCD – a mix of the theory and some interactive fun – and help you to explore how you might consider a different approach to working with your local community in order to build capacity and long-term resilience.

Whether you are new to community development, or you are a well-established practitioner, this workshop has something for everyone.

Sandwell-based groups are able to attend for FREE. Groups from outside the borough are also welcome to attend, but are subject to a charge of £10.

Places are limited to ONE per organisation and must be booked via Eventbrite.
