Nurture Development was established by Cormac Russell in 1996 and since then, we have been the leading Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) research, development and training organisation in Europe.
We are one of eleven strategic partners of the ABCD Institute, and the lead partner in Europe.
We have worked as ABCD social explorers, trainers, mentors, facilitators, researchers and consultants with change partners and disruptive innovators around the world. These include Communities, Charities, NGOs/NPOs, Faith-based organisations, Think Tanks; local and national Governments in over 30 countries.
Our ambition is to support the proliferation of inclusive, bottom up, community driven change.
We aim to achieve this by supporting local communities and supportive mediating/civic organisations to create the conditions where any neighbourhood can identify, connect and mobilise its assets to the benefit of the whole community.
