Resilience Framework CYP

Communities of Practice

East Sussex RT CoP

This CoP was commissioned by Hastings and Rother Primary Care Trust and East Sussex County Council Children’s Services. 

A University of Brighton research project, it brought together an exciting group of individuals interested in developing their own areas of work with the addition of an RT approach.

Members came from a range of settings including for example: Connexions, Leaving Care, Young Men’s Health, Caseworkers, Children’s Centres, Family Nursing, Counselling, Fostering, Crime Reduction Initiatives, Intensive Family Support and Behaviour Support.  

The group met once a month in a supportive facilitated group to take part in a series of training sessions, test resilience and RT ideas in their own settings, share the experience with each other, reflect on their leaning and participate in the evaluation.

Here’s a sample of work completed: 

  • Making a magic box with drawers of resilience ideas to be used with young people to chart their progress
  • Designing a board game to assist young people to identify their own resilient qualities and consider whose around in their lives to help them.
  • Building coping skills with young people through individual casework
  • Applying RT to casework and recording impact
  • Revamping a Pathway Plan which resilience in mind
  • Constructing a Jenga-style RT game to provide tangible focus on resilient ideas, for use with young men
  • Incorporating RT into the ‘Moving On’ support course for parents of disabled children
  • Incorporate young peoples views to chart progress and measure resilient outcomes
