The Asset-based, Resident-led Neighbourhood Development report presents insights derived from Action for Neighbourhood Change's (ANC) first 14 months of operation. It highlights the asset-based, resident-led approach pursued on the ground in the five participating neighbourhoods. It also considers the roles that government and voluntary sector partners at the national level can play in support of such initiatives.
