How well we cope with the things that life throws at us is a key factor in determining our well-being. Helping young people to build resilience increases their chances of making a successful transition from junior to secondary school and beyond.
We help young people to build resilience through our work in schools and youth clubs as well as special programmes.

The Smart Moves Programme helps students to develop life long resilience which helps address some common anxieties when transitioning from year 6 to year 7. Using consistent language and models across the school phases helps young people to embed the newly learned resilience skills.
