Boingboing is a not-for profit organisation. We run regular Resilience Forums, develop Resilience Frameworks, books and other materials, and offer training, workshops and talks on resilient approaches to life’s challenges. We aim to be inclusive and we provide many free resources on our website. Boingboing believes in co-production and the majority of the work that we do is co-produced by members of the local community including young people. Our courses have been certified by the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Certification Service as conforming to continuing professional development principles and so they can count towards your CPD for the year. We run the following courses in Brighton, and similar courses are running in Blackpool.
