Resilience is at the heart of pupil wellbeing, success and long term mental health, as they navigate their way through childhood, adolescence and into adulthood. With The Resilience Doughnut, you can build the resilience of your pupils and staff so they can connect, grow and flourish within a positive school community. 

Resilience is not a latent quality inside an individual child or adolescent, or a quality of a family, school or community. It is instead a process that involves multiple systems working together to help children and adolescents thrive when they are experiencing adversity or transitions. When building resilience we need an understanding of the things that help all children, adolescents and adults cope better, like relationships, a powerful identity, a sense of belonging, agency, meaning, purpose, achievement and social justice, all of which are embedded within The Resilience Doughnut. A resilience-building response involves multiple systems and is attuned to the cultural and contextual differences found among the individuals, the school and wider community to which they are part. - This is what we help you to do. 

The Resilience Doughnut provides a practical research-validated tool for schools and colleges which can be used on a class, year group or whole school, basis, enabling all pupils to better manage the inevitable ups and downs of life and with individuals and small groups on a targeted basis to build capacity for resilience for those currently experiencing a challenge, adversity or transition. 

The Resilience Doughnut also provides a framework for schools and colleges to establish, build and strengthen a positive school climate, which involves every pupil, member of staff and parent in their interactions each day. Fostering resilience at an individual, class and whole-school level has the potential to build schools in which the pupils have the capacity to grow and flourish within a positive school community.
