Event description

Description

In 2013, Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) was introduced to Thurrock by Cormac Russell, to support us working towards an asset based approach and building more connected, less isolated communities which promotes the strengths, skills, passions and energy of the local community.

Cormac was very inspirational and empowered many of those present to change the way they worked. He shared his knowledge, stories and experience of ABCD from across the world.

Over the past 5 years the Stronger Together partnership have supported the ABCD approach to working differently, focusing on ‘what’s great about Thurrock and its communities’ and exploring our community assets such as people, groups, places etc.

Projects such as the Community Hub programme, Local Area Coordination, Time banking, Social Prescribing, small sparks funding, Giving for Thurrock etc have been developed with a view of strengthening Thurrock’s communities and helping people discover, connect and mobilise around things they care about.

The ABCD Conference is a perfect opportunity to look back on our journey and to find out more about the ABCD approach to help build stronger resilient communities where people can share ideas, concerns and future aspirations together in Thurrock.
