Cormac Russell explains Asset Based Community Development

“Asset Based Community Development really is the focus on what exists in communities and within individuals that they can use to grow community to get the kind of life that they want, a life of their choosing…

… What it also recognises is that there are some barriers to people doing that, to focusing on what they have. And probably some of those barriers relate to the fact that over the last 30-40 years we have become very focused on what people don’t have, what people need to receive…

…. ABCD is about what building community and community is about what people have, not on what they don’t have.”

Cormac Russell, Managing director of Nurture Development, explains the philosophy that lies behind Asset Based Community Development (ABCD).
