  • Play Ted Talks ‘The Danger of a Single Story’ <br />
  • Explain how as a funder over the past decade we focused on deficiencies rather than assets before organisations could access the funds we managed usually on behalf of governments, local authorities and private businesses <br />
  • The Asset Based approach looks at things through a different lens: it tries to understand where the opportunities are, and what strengths can be built on. <br />
  • When Foundation criteria only focuses on needs and deficiencies it can have the unintended consequence of blinding local people to their own and each others resources/capacities that could used to get what they want. This leads to a dependency on outside aid. What we want to do is to make sure outside resources respond to local priorities by building on the strengths of local communities, with residents in the lead; not build dependency. <br />
  • In a nutshell we are moving from a transactional way of doing business where we find problems, fund them, in the hope that we might fix them, to a transformative way that sees people as citizens with resources as equally important as our, real partners for durable citizen led change… <br />
  • To a process of grass roots grant making and community building that puts citizens in the lead. Of course we want to do this in a way that does not simply give gate keepers more power, and this is why Asset Based Community Development as a process matters so much: it shows us a clear way that everyone can be included and everyone’s voice can be heard. <br />
  • Sholver Connectors Club <br />
  • Sholver Connectors <br />
  • ABCD Recognises that everyone has gifts and talents, lablled people – what are some of the labels that might disconnect people from their community? <br />

  • Important to recognise the great stuff that community groups do in our neighbourhoods, but creating space for problem solving, can lead to a space of conflict between residents and agencies. You Said, we didn’t do…….. <br />
  • The Asset Based approach looks at things through a different lens: it tries to understand where the opportunities are, and what strengths can be built on. <br />
  • How many assets did we discover in last weeks session? <br /> Start with what you have it will help get what you need………… <br />
  • Community Builders become skilled at spotting, illuminating and connecting these ideas….. <br />

  • 13. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER What’s Missing?
  • 14. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Is What Exists….
  • 15. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER “The Danger of a Single Story”
  • 16. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER • Is the ‘danger of a single story’ an issue for you and your work? • What kind of language does your organisation use to describe the people that you work with? • How do you portray the communities where you work in your annual reports, funding proposals, reports and needs assessments? • What implications might language have on the communities where you work? • What would you have to change to challenge this kind of language?
  • 17. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Break….
  • 18. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS. Asset Based Community Development A Strength Based Approach to Community Building
  • 19. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS. “The purpose of ABCD is to help people remember what they already know”Professor John McKnight
  • 20. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER About Asset Based Community Development? Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) Institute was founded in 1995 after 3 decades of community development research Founded by Professor John McKnight and Professor Jodi Kretzman at Northwestern University Chicago ABCD is asset based and relationship driven ABCD demonstrates focuses on assets in a community ABCD challenges traditional approaches to solving urban problems
  • 21. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Asset Based Community Development A Strengths Based Approach is a different way of thinking about how to work for change – starting from a place of possibilities, strengths and capacities as opposed to problems and deficiencies. A Strengths Based Approach helps residents and organisations manage change by mobilising their existing and potential capacities, resources and assets.
  • 22. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Asset Based Community Building Six principals of Community Building  Start with people’s strengths  Start with relationship building  Placed based work is vitally important since most things come together in the neighbourhood  Citizen-led action is more durable and sustainable than professional intervention  Social justice is at the heart of every community building effort  When the conversation shifts from ‘isn’t it awful’ to what’s possible? Real community building begins
  • 23. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER What might be possible if people focusedtheir attentionon…. rather than problems more than weaknesses What can be done instead of what can’t be done
  • 24. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Is The Glass Half Full or Half Empty? Individuals & Communities also have skills and talents Individuals & Communities have deficiencies & needs
  • 25. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER
  • 26. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Needs to Strengths Transaction Why not also have a model that…Transforms Focus on Deficiencies Focus on Assets Problem Response Identify Opportunities Charity Orientation Investment Orientation Grants to Agencies Grants, Loans, Investments, Leverage More Services Fewer Services High Emphasis on Agencies Emphasis on Associations Focus on Individuals Focus on communities/neighbourhoods Maintenance Development See People as Clients See People as Citizens and Co-producers ‘Fix People’ Develop Potential Programmes are the Answer People are the Answer
  • 27. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Our Traditional Grant Making Approach Tell us what’s wrong not what’s strong in your community…. Find It, Fund it & Fix it….
  • 28. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Strength Based Approach Residents in the Driving Seat
  • 29. HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Leaders, Connectors & Gift Givers  Leaders – Those that will lead the process long after you are gone. They are passionate about opening doors in their community and are aware of the strengths as well as the challenges within their community  Connectors – Those that easily connect with large numbers of their neighbours, they are serial relationship builders and seem to know everyone. On average a connector will know 50 people by name in their community.  Gift Givers – Those who want to contribute a particular skill, gift or knowledge set to the community building effort, but not well connected themselves, or may not see themselves in a leadership role.

HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER Asset Role Call in Lostock (Trafford) I just wanted to share some of the amazing gifts of the people of Lostock that we have already discovered.

What happens next with this information is up to the Residents to decide, the list is growing every day and people are beginning to gather around ideas which utilise the skills they have that they can share with other people in engaging, practical and imaginative ways. The possibilities seem endless as does the list of assets waiting to be found. James Hampson - Asset Based Community Builder

Any group or community cannot fail to be Inspired by ants, their ability to be so physically small yet solve huge and complex Issues”. ”We may not appreciate the damage they can wreak on crops and buildings, But their ability to battle the odds and win is clear in the picture”. ”Simple and powerful too”.

A load of different types of medication, therapy, and everyone sticking their nose in!! A new diagnosis of Cyclothymia 4 years ago made me realise I wasn't mental, I was just ill. For a while it beat me, to the point of constant thoughts of suicide. Hence the "off the train tracks" in the title.

HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS TOGETHER ACCT Alters People “As an officer, if you wanted anything doing on an estate you had to do it for the community and handholdíng them through the entire process”! “I felt that this old method had left the people of Alt amongst other estates with the expectation that people would always come in and fix stuff for them”. “The strength based approach has completely turned my old ethos on its head it’s left me completely blown away by this new style of working”. “You can only hold a child’s hand for so long, there comes a point where you have to let go and let them walk for themselves”. Forever Manchester has made her look at the way she works and given her the opportunity to meet more people on the estate who Lisa admits “would never have given me the time of day without this project”!
