Project: Community Builder, Cliftons & Nowells, using ABCD

What is ABCD?  ABCD (Asset Based Community Development) is an exciting global movement that teaches us about meaningful and community led change. ABCD starts from a place that prioritises and celebrates the strengths and assets communities have to draw from, rather than starting from a point of focusing on what is wrong in communities and needs fixing.

Our Community builder Julie has been spending time getting to know local people, looking for similar interests and passions, helping to connect people and looking for those people who are natural community connectors. A community connector is someone who people are drawn to, who has a natural enthusiasm and can bring people together.

 

Julie has been spending time helping people understand the gifts they have to offer, “everyone has something to offer”, and helping people develop the knowledge and skills they want to share. Julie has supported residents to develop a constituted community group, helped local people run a Christmas Crafts event, worked with local people to improve their immediate environment,  supported residents into volunteering and training, sign-posted people for 1:1 support with a range of personal issues, organised some school holiday activities and helped establish a bingo group.

 

The project is picking up momentum, with more exciting opportunities developing.
