Asset Based Community DevelopmentAsset-based community development, put very simply, is a bottom-up approach to working with communities that starts from a place that 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. Asset-based community development draws upon existing community bonds to build stronger, more sustainable communities for the future.

ABCD Training

Touchstone hosts a project which aims to support organisations across Leeds looking to adopt asset-based community development approaches across Leeds. Through hosting workshops, training, asset mapping, networking opportunities and celebration events we seek to deepen understanding of ABCD practise and develop a shared local language for what this innovative approach means for the city of Leeds. If you are interested your organisation receiving free training please emailĀ
