Community revitalization focuses on what’s strong, not what’s wrong

Focusing on “what’s strong, not what’s wrong”, asset-based community development is helping local areas shake off their ‘deprived’ status and build themselves from the bottom up.

A former miners bathhouse in Moston, north Manchester (UK), –- the site of the former pit is opposite -– had been a working men’s club until it was left to fall into disrepair.

It’s now the Miners Community Arts Centre, proving the power of asset-based community development before the term was even heard of in the area.
