This training offer builds upon Nurture Development’s ABCD Training Part 1. The two day workshop is an opportunity for citizens, practitioners and agency leaders to develop a framework for the effective establishment of Asset-Based Community Development initiatives in the local context. As with all our training at Nurture Development, Part 2 brings together the ABCD Institute’s 30 years of community development research in North America, with Nurture Development’s 21 years of international research and practical experience of community building and pioneering approaches in other strength based work.
ABCD Training Part 2 is eight learning sessions over two days:
Develop and implement a dynamic framework for authentic and sustainable community driven change that maintains the integrity of the ABCD principles and supports genuine impact on the ground. You will learn to support your organisation and allied organisations to make the shifts from deficit models of delivery to asset based community development and asset-based commissioning. Also you will gain a strong grounding in the political philosophy of ABCD enabling you to respond to challenges and obstacles.

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.
