ABCD Facilitator Training Workshop

ABCD Facilitator Training Workshop

Join the ABCD Network in the ABCD Facilitator Training Workshop Wollongong May 6th!


The ABCD Illawarra Network is supporting (ADHC)

A community without a place for everyone really has a place for no one (Mike Green, Engaging Communities).

The ABCD Illawarra Network is supporting NSW Ageing, Disability and Homecare (ADHC) in its work with local communities to improve and build support for people with disabilities in this region using an ABCD approach. With its focus on discovering and utilizing people’s individual assets to create more inclusive communities, an ABCD/strengths-based approach has much to offer those supporting people with a disability. If you are working with people with a disability using a strengths-based approach, tell us more about your successes and challenges in using this approach.
