Thanks to Carolyn D’Mello, Project Manager Inclusion at City of Ryde Council our staff had an opportunity to learn about the ABCD (Asset Based Community Development) approach. She provided us with advice and practical information on building sustainable communities through existing individual and community assets.
We found this approach to be inspiring and uplifting. It is always better to look and build on our strengths, assets and capabilities rather than needs, deficiencies and shortcomings. If you want to learn more about the ABCD Model visit: www.abcdinstitute.org
