The Resilience Revolution

The Resilience Revolution is a whole town approach to building resilience, creating a more resilient town to grow up and thrive in.

Why a Revolution?

Not everyone in life has the same opportunities, in Blackpool our Resilience Revolution will give everyone and anyone the chance to learn more about resilience for themselves and those around them, get involved and make Blackpool better.

What is the Resilience Pathway?

The Resilience Pathway is a series of 42 paving stones with positive steps to follow to help build resilience. It’s based on the Resilience Framework which is made up of 42 ‘moves’, split into five core areas of Basics, Belonging, Learning, Coping and Core self. The Resilience Framework is the work of Professor Angie Hart, Derek Blincow and Helen Thomas.

Who’s behind the Resilience Pathway?

The project to make the Resilience Pathway a reality has been led by a group of young people from Blackpool. Their motto is “nothing about us, without us”. Young people are helping to embed one approach and one language about resilience, and they are at the centre and co-leading this wider Resilience Revolution.

Where can you find the Resilience Pathway?

Represented through 42 paving stones, you can find the physical Resilience Pathway along Talbot Road leading from Dickson Road to the Promenade.

The Resilience Revolution is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund HeadStart programme.

HeadStart is a five-year, £58.7 million programme set up by The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK, which aims to improve the mental wellbeing of 10 to 16 year olds and prevent serious mental health issues before they develop. Six HeadStart partnerships across England are piloting new test-and-learn approaches to providing support when and where it is needed, focusing on developing young people’s emotional resilience from an early age.

To make sure support works, the HeadStart partnerships involve young people in the co-design, commissioning, delivery and evaluation of services.
