Schools and communities

Schools and community settings have a huge opportunity to make an impact on the healthy emotional growth and resilience of the young people that they work with. Taking a whole setting approach involves considering all interactions with young people, both formal and informal.

HeadStart Kent have taken the eight principles of the Public Health England’s ‘Promoting Children and Young People’s Emotional Heath and Wellbeing – a Whole School and College Approach‘ and created a free School Resilience Toolkit for all schools to use to create a comprehensive plan of activity that will not only benefit the students but the staff, families and wider community too.

Community organisations are also be able to develop their whole setting approach to wellbeing and resilience through the free Community Resilience Toolkit.
