Navigate your route towards resilience! Take your time to explore the activities, enjoy the images and take inspiration from the stories.

“Hopefully you have picked up the booklet because you are a carer who would like to support your child to be more resilient.  you may be a practitioner wanting to give carers some tips on how to support their child or young person… or you may be a young person who is interested in resilience, wants to know more about it, what is needed to support your own resilience and also how you can support your friends too!”

“Maybe you think the word ‘resilience’ echoes thoughts of happy, thriving children and young people who manage the ups and downs of life. The way we see it, together, you and your carer or worker, are embarking on an exciting journey, and understanding about resilience can help young people overcome difficult times in their lives and live the life they want to.”

A guide to becoming more eco-friendly in Blackpool and the Fylde Coast

A guide to becoming more eco-friendly in Blackpool and the Fylde Coast

Hi, I’m Maya, and I wanted to say a big thank you to you for reading. These guides were created to help people in Blackpool and the Fylde Coast become more environmentally friendly, without feeling too overwhelmed by climate issues. They were produced as part of the Boingboing Activist in Residence project, which gave me the opportunity to work as an Eco-activist in Residence at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. I decided that I wanted to use this role to make two guides: one for local residents, and another for Blackpool Teaching Hospitals’ Green Champions.
