The Resilience Forum is a monthly space where we welcome and encourage discussion, disagreement and debate about resilience research and practice. Presenters at the Forum have included parents, young people, academics and practitioners and a similar mix is planned for future events. ANYBODY (with a pulse!) involved with or interested in resilience research is welcome and attendance at the Resilience Forum is free. We only ask that you have tried to get your head around one of our RT books, our resilience approach or at least something specific on resilience before you come so we all have a basic shared understanding.
Helping not hurting: horizontal care to peer care in a UK prison – 26 Apr 2022 – Online Resilience Forum
Over the past two decades, the proportion of older prisoners in England and Wales has increased dramatically, which is problematic as prisons are not designed for issues associated with older adulthood. In this Resilience Forum Dr Warren Stewart will discuss the development of peer care in prisons in support of older adults and disabled detainees.

“I was so impressed by the quality of the facilitation and the skilful way in which the activities created the space to think, and reflect, and we also were able to take away practical tools and new ideas. Win! Win! Win!”
“Very stimulating debate and enjoyable too. Thank you.”
“To be able to reflect on how I am integrating Resilience into practice was so valuable. I really do appreciate the forums which are consistently excellent, inspiring and challenging.”
You can find information about our previous Resilience Forums in Brighton, Blackpool, Hastings and online here. Many of our previous Resilience Forums and Centre meetings have slides you can download, blogs you can read, or short films you can watch.
The Resilience Forum is only made possible through the hard work and commitment of our amazing volunteers and staff. Find out more about the team behind the forum and their involvement in the Boingboing, CRSJ and Resilience Revolution community.

It’s a friendly, lively forum with a real mix of participants which we try to keep on the small side so we can have a good chat. So, if you feel like coming along have a look at the upcoming forums and just click through to the booking page. You can also subscribe to our mailing list so you get reminders in plenty of time.
