Asset-based community development (ABCD) data service
Thriving communities are connected communities
We live in benevolent and caring communities and there is already much being done within our communities to improve the social, economic, and ecological sustainability of our living and working. Our open, accessible, and not-for-profit managed asset-based community data mapping service provides vital intelligence to support community development and place-making initiatives.
Local Community Groups
Helping people come together and make great things happen
A visual platform that enables groups or networks to describe themselves and become known, and identify and digitally connect with other groups, networks, organisations and businesses to create improved opportunities for delivery of interconnected support and increased access to other local assets and resources.
Social Enterprise and Coops
New economies and community wealth
The transformation of our communities and places by social innovators and enterprises leads to the delivery of a new economy. They provide vital local services while creating new employment opportunities and local investment, supporting active participation in community decision-making and increasing community resilience and sustainability.
Local Charity and Voluntary Sector
Creating social purpose connections and collaborations
Local charities and voluntary organisations play a significant role in helping people and communities across all determinants of well-being. By increasing awareness and connectedness, we can better address the cause and effect of social challenges and issues that are holding people and communities back from thriving.
The Business Sector
Businesses becoming forces for good
For building greater corporate social responsibility (CSR) / B-Corp, the solution can help commercial businesses and corporations identify, connect and engage their social purpose missions in transforming the local economy to benefit people, communities, and the environment. The solution can also be leveraged to engage on sustainability plans and support visual mapping of progress towards targets like NetZero.
Community Places and Spaces
Creating opportunity for better use of places and spaces
By enabling people and communities to identify and engage with local assets, the extent and scope of the benefit potential can grow. Anything can be an asset, from a park bench being a meeting place to events hosted in a friendly farmer’s barn or village hall to a ballroom!
Community led early intervention and prevention
Close local connections of people, families and communities are where the early recognition of emerging well-being needs occurs. Creating better empowered self-care capability and self-social prescribing links to local community support is how reductions in demand on overstretched public services become a reality, and the pathway toward sustainability becomes a realisable ambition.
