 Practice Sharing Event

  • Contribute to the conversation
  • Network over a hot drink

This is a free event

This toolkit captures work developed through the CoP over
2015/16 and was supported by HeadStart
. HeadStart
was an initiative, funded by the Big
Lottery, to improve the emotional wellbeing and resilience of 10 to 16
year-olds in the borough. The CoP looked at how arts practice can (and
already does) promote resilience in young people. This toolkit aims to be an
evolving document and resource available on the LEAN website for those who want
to strengthen resilience in the young people they work with.
