Boingboing couldn’t carry out most of its work without the presence and input of our supporters and partners. This might be through providing funding, physical space or advice, collaboration, sharing resources, knowledge exchange and joint projects. Some of the organisations who are supporting or working with us can be found below.
We are as close as a separate organisation can be to the University of Brighton, especially the School of Health Sciences. It really helps our community-university partnership working to have so many people with multiple ‘hats’ or identities, dancing cheek to cheek, so to speak.
The Community University Partnership Programme (CUPP) at the University of Brighton was instrumental in establishing Boingboing as a collaborative network and social enterprise, providing funding, advice and support.
Boingboing Blackpool is a really exciting new development that is now well underway. Blackpool were one of only 6 areas that were successful in bidding for HeadStart funding from the Big Lottery Fund, and they now have funding for 5 years to really embed and develop their plans.
The Big Lottery-funded HeadStart programme gave local authorities money to support young people to cope with difficult circumstances. Boingboing receives funding to support HeadStart Blackpool to implement their resilience programme to support the children and young people of Blackpool.
We provide training to Newport Mind on resilience and provide supervision to their family workers. Newport Mind is an active partner on many of our joint research projects with the University of Brighton, including the Imagine Programme and our Q-Sort Project.
The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) is the UK’s largest organisation for funding research on economic and social issues. It supports independent, high quality research which has an impact on business, the public sector and the third sector.
YoungMinds is a charity who are committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people. They have adopted our Academic Resilience Approach and provide training through their own train the trainer model.
