This paper compares the ‘Achieving Better Community Development’ (ABCD) model for organisational practice (Barr & Hashagen 2000) with the organisational practices in New Zealand ‘social development’ approach to social service provision. As a result of this comparison we evaluate whether the ABCD model is a more appropriate framework for evaluating voluntary sector organisations who are informed by community development concepts.
