These workshops are for change makers who want to elevate the status and function of ‘connected communities’ as agents of health production as well as social, economic and environmental change.
Two Day ABCD Workshop
Building on the One Day ABCD Workshop, this training delves into the practical application and implementation of the approach, providing more in-depth training in the use of specific tools.
One Day ABCD Workshop
This training provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of Asset Based Community Development. It brings together the ABCD Institute’s 30 years of community development research in the USA, with Nurture Development’s 20 years of international research and practical experience of community development and pioneering approaches in other strength based work.
Recovery & ABCD
Want to understand the contribution that ABCD can make to Recovery in the neighbourhood where you live/work? This training will enable you to take ABCD into action in living neighbourhoods in a way that is respectful of the local context and ultimately create safer, healthier, more economically and environmentally vibrant places to live and to recover.
Whole Community Transformation
In these workshops we show you how to use your resources to work at neighbourhood level to connect people, shifting from a focus on separate targets groups, such as the frail elderly, youth at risk, ex prisoner etc.
