This training has been designed to bring together the ABCD Institute’s 30 years of community development research in the USA, with Nurture Development’s 21 years of international research and practical experience of community development and pioneering approaches in other strength based work across the world.
This workshop will:
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. You will be able to use what’s strong in the neighbourhood where you live and/or work to deal with what’s wrong, but also make what’s strong, stronger.
Jennine Bailey has brought ABCD practice to life for people in a governance role. She is constructive and brings liveliness with whoever she works with.
Nurture Development is very flexible, adaptable and nothing is ever a problem. They will support you in any way to meet your aims and objectives.
Paul Macey is a natural in stimulating meaningful conversations with a diverse range of stakeholders within communities.
The openness and integrity of Nurture Development is an example for many of us seeking to serve the communities of which we are a part.
Nurture Development support has been invaluable in helping us to reflect on our practice and encouraging us when we have hit a stumbling block.
The work of Nurture Development offers genuinely transformative ways forward for communities and local authorities across the country.”
It is impossible to see how ABCD could be delivered in a credible way without the support, knowledge skill and experience that Nurture and Cormac bring.
Nurture Development is uniquely placed to provide thought leadership and practical support in promoting more place based, citizen centred approaches throughout the UK and beyond.
