Community Resilience Toolkit

The Community Toolkit is a tool to help community and voluntary organisations think about the ways you support the wellbeing of young people, families, staff and volunteers. It is structured around eight whole-setting approach principles.

Here community organisations will find the resources you need to assess your current approach to resilience and wellbeing, celebrate existing good practice, and put key actions in place to develop your whole setting approach even further.

You can apply for theĀ Community Award for Resilience and Emotional Wellbeing to recognise all your hard work too!

Take a look at the videos below to see what staff at the Pavilion Youth and Community Cafe in Broadstairs thought of the process and how it has supported their work with young people.
