A WHOLE NEW WAY OF THINKING ABOUT NEIGHBOURHOODS
ACCELERATING CHANGE FOR SOCIAL IMPACT
Rediscovering relationships through asset based approaches. Capitalising on existing strengths and networks, unearthing endless possibilities in neighbourhoods to unleash infinite potential.
ASSET BASED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT (ABCD)
Uncover a wealth of potential existing beneath the surface of any neighbourhood and utilise it to create an enriched future for its residents. Connect and unleash existing skills, networks and leaders so authentic social change emerges from within and lovingly distrupts the perceptions that limit it. Asset Based Community Development offers a powerful approach to community transformation.
UNLEASHING INDIVIDUAL AND
It releases time, effort, talents, ideas, resources and wisdom within neighbourhoods. it maps strengths and creates micro-economies, connects people, futures intuition and resilience so communities revitalise authentically from the inside out. And it maintains the interdependence, participation and rapport of residents so real social impact can be supported by voluntary and public sectors.
THE MAGIC OF CONNECTION
Using effective transformational approaches that focuses on potential, ideas and possibilities. We awaken the invisible power in people and places to accelerate change for social impact. In individuals, we illuminate the intrinsic gifts that reside within every person and can bring true transformation to their lives and environment. In teams and groups, we harness remarkable strength in diversity, collective wisdom and authentic relationships.
In organisations, we dissolve outdated thinking and limiting beliefs in favour of strength-focused practices and an expanded capability to achieve results. In neighbourhoods, we enable social transformation by connecting people who wish to change, grow and thrive together regardless of ongoing challenges. Our success is underpinned by the emergence of clarity, insight, wellness and wisdom within all those who work with us.
We foster inclusiveness, initiative and innovation among people. We guide them to their true nature, skills and talents so they may achieve results previously thought impossible. We see their authentic potential and future emerge from within them. And we continue to coach and mentor them so they may fulfil the ever increasing possibility available to them. And that is why Our Happiness Factor believes your potential is our potential and your success is our success
"I recognised my own community and my role in it, looking for opportunities to share my skills and knowledge. I attended a Community Soup, got to know the organisers and I am now regularly involved as a volunteer.
This has been a genuine transformative experience, opening my eyes to the huge amount of 'good stuff' happening in my community."
ABCD provides the opportunity to build new relationships between local people and organisations. It focuses on placing residents at the heart of their community and unleashes the potential within.
