Bringing Community Assets to Life – CCNB’s Approach to Community Building

CCNB believes that the answer to any challenge lies with community. If we all just care enough, know how to connect and act enough then we can do anything.

Our approach is based on Asset Based Community Development (ABCD), a model originally developed by John McKnight and John Kretzman. 

This means CCNB;

1.  Focuses on community assets and strengths rather than problems and needs

2. Identifies and mobilises individual and community assets, skills and passions

3. Is community driven – “building communities from inside out”

4. Is relationship driven – mobilising relationships to unlock our potential
