Welcome! to the "ABCD of Thriving Communities" website...
a website developed for and with neighbourhood and community centres in WA
This website has been developed as part of Linkwest's CoDesign for Thriving Communities project.
We hope you'll find inspiration, resources and connection here - to help your centre build and engage community using Asset Based Community Development and other strengths based frameworks.
Asset Based Community Development offers ways to help our organisations and our communities build on what's strong, not what's wrong. It offers practical ways to engage with others around the things they care about, toward greater community wellbeing for all.
We'll be adding to this website over time. Here's a few good places to start looking around:
View our two five minute videos about co-design learning and practice in Kalannie CRC and Yangebup Family Centre.
And let us know what you think! We would love to have your input - including your stories, resources, inspirations and questions as we develop and evolve this site over the next stage of the CoDesign Project.
