Asset-Based Community Development

In 2020, a three-year grant was provided through our Community Development Fund for Older People. The fund was launched with the aim of encouraging collaboration and linking older people into existing services in order to reengage older people.

Using an asset-based community development (ABCD) approach, each organisation has used this approach to build on the existing strengths of the community and listened to its needs. The benefits this approach brings was wonderfully brought to life in a recent conversation Knowle West Health Park had with a member of the local community. Click here to listen to Community Development Worker for Older People, Kathleen Woodhouse, talk to Kim. Kathleen encourages older people in the community to start up groups based on their interests and it’s great to hear in Kim’s own words what the skittles group has meant to her.
