Coming to all Blackpool Households......
A tool that anyone and everyone can use to help build resilience and get through tough times.
In Blackpool, young people, adults and our whole community have been learning about resilience as we lead a world's first Resilience Revolution. It means anyone who lives, works or volunteers in Blackpool can play a part in making our own a more resilient place to grow up and live. Resilience is the ability to bounce forward from tough times. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is one of those tough times - affecting us all in different ways. Inside this Resilience Framework Resource are two versions of our Resilience Framework. One created by young people for young people, and the family version - designed to be used by whole family groups or adults.
If you live in Blackpool, look out for this resource which is being distributed to every household. You can also download a free copy of the leaflet here

We suggest, that if parents or carers come to you directly, worried about information they have seen or heard about a scare, you should signpost them to our article, which contains further information and links to other resources.

Making Resilient Moves as a Family
We want to reach out to extend a hand of solidarity, love and support from the Resilience Revolution during these challenging and uncertain times, and to ensure communication loops between us all continue to be open. We believe that the Resilience Framework, a tool we are all now so familiar with in the Resilience Revolution, offers lots of really practical steps and actions which we can all draw on to navigate this situation and look after ourselves and one another.
Young people, parents, carers, practitioners and many others are already mobilising to create resources, top tips and practical suggestions all linked to making Resilient Moves as individuals, family units and indeed across the whole town! We plan to share as much helpful stuff as we can through this page, which we will update as regularly as possible (hopefully daily!)
The Resilience Revolution is a whole town approach to building resilience and now more than ever we will unite to support each other through this tough time. Please do share any ideas, resources, advice or information that you think will be helpful to others through this page by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe and lets keep connected.
