Why we exist
While traditional risk behaviours such as smoking, alcohol, drugs and may be reducing, many new risks are affecting our young and old populations.
The immediacy of smartphone technology – while positive in many ways – has created new problems associated with bullying, organised crime and gambling. Even Social media – first thought to be relatively harmless – can lead to unhealthy addictions resulting constantly being ‘switched on’.
Social pressures to compete or ‘compare’ with peers has never been greater. Celebrities and their perfect bodies ever visible. Quality career opportunities more visible yet seemingly more out of reach to many who feel the equality gap is widening not shortening.
There is no single answer why millions of people across the UK are now living with anxiety, unhealthy levels of stress and depression.
And equally no one solution to easing our significantly overstretched Public Services, whether it’s the Police, A&E departments, GPs or specialist mental health services such as CAMHS.
Yet the one thing we do know is that many of life’s problems are preventable – given the right combination of investment, education and support to individuals and their communities.
Our well tested approach is proven to positively and measurably change thousands of lives, universally at scale.
We are helping people to unlock new ways of becoming more resilient, giving them the courage and confidence to thrive through adversity.
And we are empowering people with the knowledge and strength to support others – spreading resilience throughout our schools and communities.
We are creating impacts can be measured, scaled and sustained.
