Forum Central has developed a Glossary to explain common acronyms and abbreviations relating to health & care in general, nationally, regionally & locally.
We understand that all across the third sector, within health and care especially, there are a LOT of acronyms, and that can understandably be very confusing for people.
We’ve created a glossary of terms to try help people better understand what these key terms actually mean.
We compiled a list (which will grow no doubt) of acronyms and abbreviations that are commonly used at national, regional & local level, then detailed what they stand for, and unless self explanatory we’ve gone on to explain what it means i.e. what it is or what it does.
ABCD – Asset Based Community Development – A methodology for the sustainable development of communities based on their strengths and potentials
