“In my monitoring of schools, I am seeing the effectiveness and impact of this approach by learning, teaching, behaviour, attitudes, communities, lives. Hugely important, truly inspiring. Thank you for the opportunity to be better equipped to give children a character literacy to improve lives and society.”
Ralph Wood, School Effectiveness Officer, Diocese of Leicester Academy Trust (DLAT)
Funded as part of the local NHS Future in Mind programme, Route to Resilience is an evidence-based and practical approach to supporting schools and families in their work developing the emotional wellbeing and resilience of children and young people.
This fully-funded and accredited programme is being offered to all state-maintained and state-funded primary schools, secondary schools and colleges across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland over the next three-years.
Future in Mind
In 2015, NHS England launched Future in Mind, a national report that articulated the need to set about tackling the problems with mental wellbeing in the early years to create a system that brings together the potential of the web, schools, social care, the NHS, the voluntary sector, parents and children and young people themselves.
A local Future in Mind transformation programme was established by partner organisations - including the NHS Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS West Leicestershire CCG, NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG, Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and Rutland County Council - that has sought to improve the local children and young people's mental health and wellbeing pathway through a series of fully-funded strategic commissions against each of the five big themes of the national report; including Route to Resilience.
