The social, historical, cultural and democratic context of civic engagement: imagining different communities and making them happen.

Lead Research Organisation: University of Sheffield
Department Name: Education

Abstract

Our research studies how communities connect people, both today and in the past. These connections take many forms, but often include people coming together to seek change and pursue a different future. We are interested in the role imagination plays in how such futures are conceived and pursued. The history of people's involvement in community initiatives includes both successful innovation and frustration and disappointment, in the UK and elsewhere. Our project will learn from both scenarios. We will study community connections in different types of community (some present, some past). Using our new knowledge, together we will imagine how communities might be different and experiment with different forms of community building.

Communities are made up of people who share some things in common, but also have differences. In the light of this we want to ask four main questions: 1) What are the best ways of conceptualising, researching and promoting connected communities so that they have the potential to accommodate and benefit from social, cultural and economic differences and diverse opinions and practices? 2) What does the history of civic engagement tell us about how and why the social, historical, cultural and democratic context matters to community-building? 3) What role can imagining better futures play in capturing and sustaining enthusiasm and momentum for change? 4) Is community research being transformed by developments in research methodologies, particularly the development of creative and collaborative methods?

Our approach to these questions challenges ideas of community that focus on what is lacking, highlighting instead the role that harnessing imagination plays in shaping community futures. It brings together researchers from a range of disciplines across the social sciences and arts and humanities interested in community relationships together with partner organisations dedicated to community development in a range of locations. International colleagues will add further dimensions to the consortium's activities, acting as keynote speakers at events, and as advisory committee members.

The projects will employ a range of approaches to research, but with collaborative and participatory methods (community partners and universities working together) being central. Several projects involve going back to sites of previous research to explore what can be learned that is of relevance to to-day's debates about community. The return to sites of the Community Development Project of the late 1960s/early 1970s will include analysis of background statistics, documentary records, interviews, oral history, community arts and other community-based activities, tracing that history and its legacies down to the present. We will revisit culture and arts projects, and projects working with disadvantaged groups, all of which have sought to promote community resilience. Reflections on the lessons of these experiences will feed into planned interventions with members of 'disadvantaged' communities to fire imagination about the future and help to build resilience and a momentum for change. Another project will investigate what motivates volunteers to cross social and geographical boundaries, using mapping techniques, surveys and focus groups to capture these connections. The context of this proposal is a strong impetus globally towards people looking for new ways to participate in decision-making about issues that affect their lives, and to participate in research that involves them - the so-called 'democratisation of social research'. The various strands of research are held together by the team's shared interests in how people envisage co-operating and how these ideas get put into practice in diverse communities. Answering these questions requires working collaboratively to look at a range of different cases, both past and present, and to draw appropriate conclusions to inform current debates and visions of the future.

Planned Impact

Many groups can be identified that will benefit from this research. Most direct beneficiaries are the organizations outside of academia who have already agreed to collaborate with the projects in the consortium, including 37 whose letters of support are included in this application. Others have agreed verbally. Collectively these partners represent a very wide range of organizations including museums and galleries, charities, and national organizations as well as local community-based organizations with established links to both community members and policy-makers. This range of organizations can only grow as the research proceeds. Several of the proposed projects involve re-visiting organizations involved in previous community-university partnerships (such as those in the SECC and Beacons programmes), and further broadening of the network of organizations benefitting from the research will occur through the programme of annual conferences and other dissemination events and through the use of the project website to reach out. In the commercial private sector, efforts will be made to engage with architects and builders involved in community-building and regeneration, through invitations to the conference at which Cheshire will provide an international perspective. Similar invitations will be targeted at public, voluntary and commercial sector organizations in relation to the conferences devoted to collaborative working, fostering historical imagination, democratic methods for researching communities, the sights and sounds of imagined community futures, and comparative perspectives on community dvelopment, all of which will be of interest to commercial organizations in the cultural sector. Finally, beneficiaries will include individuals who do not necessarily have formal links to organizations. The consortium will draw on the wealth of its members' experience of engaging the wider public through dissemination events and other activities.

These diverse groups will benefit in several ways. The most direct of these relate to the outcomes of the projects that involve planned interventions to explore the potential of communities of practice to foster resilience and momentum for change among members of disadvantaged communities. Alongside these projects are others which are also designed to promote active engagement in the process of thinking about different community futures and making them happen. Community relationships are at the heart of people's quality of life, and the promotion of active engagement in community processes has the potential to contribute to this, especially if these activities are inclusive and participatory. In working towards the achievement of this ideal, the consortium's approach emphasises the importance of learning from experience, both the knowledge of previous community development initiatives in the UK and lessons derived through engagement with international partners, who will each make extended visits to allow them to feed in across the consortium. The public policy dimensions of these issues include examination of how community initiatives avoid the well-known pitfalls of 'top-down' processes, while the fact that diverse communities in the UK will be involved will allow direct engagement with the localism agenda. The fact that the consortium's work involves a programme that unfolds over 5 years means that projects later on in the schedule will be able to build on the results of the earlier work, such as the engagement with the Participedia project on participatory politics. These results will be available at the end of year one, and community partners and advisory group members will advise on how best to feed them into the later projects. In this way, the development of skills in more democratic of research among academic researchers and community members will be promoted. Efforts will also be made to maximise the legacy of the consortium's work through creation of durable resources.

Impact Comment from a youth worker who visited: I like the way the exhibits, testimonies and music all blended together and was very moved by the stories of these brave young women who left their homelands with just one or two suitcases. What would you pack? How to condense a lifetime and culture into such a small space. I've done this exercise with young people in relation to the Jewish Holocaust. I thought it interesting that they all seemed to pack the trouser cords, scarves and bangle from their weddings, the Quran and the cooking utensils. It is very important that these stories are told, in an ever-changing world where everything is instant and you don't have to wait weeks for an aerogram.

Description Many communities are excluded from decision-making processes and are marginalised in relation to civic engagement and community participation. The Imagine project sought to address these issues through a series of partnerships between local universities and non-academic communities of place, interest and identity. These partnerships fostered discussions about the significance and meaning of working together, within and across communities. Everyone accepted that 'community' was difficult to define, but mostly we felt that the term symbolised a desire to live and work together for mutual benefit, rather than for the enrichment or accumulation of power by a few in society. Hence, 'community development', as a value-based process, which aims to address imbalances in power and bring about change founded on social justice, equality and inclusion, came to the fore as a way of understanding questions of civic engagement and participation in the communities in which we live and work. In particular, the notion of 'community development' underlined the importance of co-productive research as an embedded and relational approach, rather than as quick, instrumental process.
Our finding are drawn across four distinct work streams:
In Brighton, our work set out to learn about and develop resilience based approaches with young people who face challenging life situations. Young people worked collectively to create a resilience toolkit - a resource of products and ideas for developing resilience e.g. One Step Forward, a guide developing by looked after children and Changing Lanes, a resource developed by young men with experience of the criminal justice system. The young people, in partnership with BoingBoing and the the University of Brighton School of Design, re-imagined the toolkit through the process of design.
This work and its findings demonstrated the importance of arts-based methodologies and partnership working to transform the ways that young people are supported in relation to their mental health. Of particular significance was the role of poetry, both as a form of expression and as a mode of inquiry. We also developed the idea of 'Belonging Maps', which highlighted the significance of material resources and artefacts when working with diverse communities. This stream of work explored the structures of knowledge production and sharing that occurs within communities. Our findings have addressed the questions that are concerned with how communities can research their own histories and also what methodologies are best for doing that research.
The work of the Imagine project in Brighton directly contributed to the successful expansion of this work to Blackpool through securing a 10.4 million grant.
On Tyneside, community partners and academics from Durham University explored changing perspectives on civic engagement, with particular emphasis on community-based arts and heritage projects. A key finding was that People belonging to communities of place, identity and interest need to be able to reclaim their own histories. In one part of the Imagine project, a research team explored activities, achievements and legacies of the Community Development Projects (CDPs) of the 1970's in three areas: Benwell (Newcastle), North Shields and Hillfields (Coventry). The CDPs were part of an experimental Home Office anti-poverty programme, initiated in the late 1960s in 12 'deprived' neighbourhoods, adopting an action-research approach. The CDPs understood the value of historical research and importance of documenting 'hidden histories' of local working people to counter histories of the powerful. In Benwell, North Shields and Coventry today groups of local people are keen to write their own histories to challenge the stigma still associated with the areas, thus strengthening and empowering local community groups (see www.dur.ac.uk/socialjustice/imagine/). The work and its findings demonstrated the value of arts-based activities in promoting inter-generational learning, for example through graffiti art. It demonstrated the value of historical perspectives in re-evaluating the work of community organisations in their neighbourhoods today. It showed the potential for changing the practice of museums in response to community-initiated heritage projects.
In Rotherham, the community research team looked at ways of empowering women in local communities by drawing on research that focuses on cultures, histories and identities. The focus was on developing longer-term relationships and legacies which would contribute to community cohesion.
The work and its findings demonstrated that existing community knowledge (oral, intergenerational, historical and located in practice) must be recognised and valued. It showed the way in which history matters, for example the history of the Pakistani community and their contributions to British history, for example, the second world war, needs to be recovered and valued. Such processes of recognition and valuing can lead to individual and community enrichment, for example one group of women produced a book about their use herbal remedies, which has been used in school settings and which has led to several of the participants returning to continue their own education. The work stream pointed to the way in which community activism needs to be nurtured from where women are, existing structures are not always easy for women to access and local, small initiatives work best.
In Huddersfield, community researchers worked with historians to contributions to historical knowledge and thinking. Arts and humanities co-production linked academic expertise and community experience to produce robust research whereby individuals developed skills for community development.
The work and its findings demonstrate that communities are able to articulate their own needs in a variety of outputs and forms, over which they have control. Often academics are already engaged with existing community activities - such as flourishing black history month events - and these partnerships enabled new forms of articulation. The work showed that the continuing underrepresentation of BME people in universities and other power structures can be mediated by coproduction to support skills for engagement. The work demonstrated the way in which co-production can become a dynamic gateway between grassroots activity and larger cultural institutions such as museums and galleries. We have used this work to inform thinking on the GCRF project, notably with the new 'Belonging and learning' project which is exploring the potential of participatory art approaches to work with policy makers.
We have used the thinking in this project to work collaboratively with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority on a project that involved co-production (Pioneering digital co-operation for resilient communities). This has helped us articulate the importance of culture in co-creating through digital means.
Exploitation Route We believe our findings are of use to civil servants who have an interest in community participation and civic engagement. We also have found that our findings have value for those wanting to work with universities from charities and third sector organisations. Organisations such as the Big Lottery, the Big Local, DCMS and other arts sector organisations have found our work helpful in thinking through co-production. We consider our articles to be leading the debate about how to do co-production with communities in ethical ways. We have informed the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement on our work. We have also advised RCUK and other funders on how co-production can be ethically constructed within research. We have also made a difference to people's lives - young people have gained in skills and resilience through the 'Boing Boing' network. Community groups have accessed university knowledge and skills. Communities have reclaimed their histories and created major exhibitions which thousands of people have attended. Major partnerships, between museums and galleries and universities, for example, have been set up and major awards won from subsequent collaborations. We have international links across the US, Canada and Australia and these partnerships have disseminated the work more widely.
Our headline findings are:
" Co-produced research is important. We use the term 'co-production' to describe methodologies that are collaborative, participatory and democratic and which try to access hidden or otherwise absent voices in civic life. Co-producing research has enabled us to develop methodologies that include voices and perspectives that uncover different forms of engagement, whether this be with groups of Muslim women, young people, people with complex needs or diverse groups within community settings. Community research teams are an essential part of this as they are able to set priorities that are important to them.

" Funding should be made available for open ended, experimental projects that make use of creative arts and a multiplicity of methodologies to encourage dialectical thinking. This can include groups researching hidden histories, artistic and visual understandings of engagement, including poetry, visual and relational art and approaches that rest on creating spaces for dialogue and communities of practice. Co-production enables new perspectives to be developed that can open up directions that universities might not have considered.

" Community development support is essential. Local authorities are cutting back but there needs to be staff supporting community projects and initiatives, regardless of whether or not there is a co-production partner such as a University.

" Universities are important resources for communities to research with and from.

" Knowledge production practices need to be carefully thought through in relation to how they value community knowledge and ideas. Shared outputs, e.g. books and other artistic products, can capture shared research practices.

This work has the potential to inform the GCRF programme, as it is concerned with re-thinking knowledge production practices. The 'Imagine' project has been featured as a case study in the ARHC-funded 'Common Cause' project . It has also been used as a case study in a recent publication by John Diamond and Carolyn Kagan on University - Community Relations in the UK, Engaging Universities (Palgrave 2020). The work has potential to support the 'Build Back Better' initiatives post-COVID, and to develop mechanisms by which community engagement can take place that respect ways of knowing in communities.

We have briefed the Office for Civil Society at the Cabinet Office, and there have been reported changes in the understanding of co-production, community/university partnerships and how civic engagement can be fostered through co-produced research. Our research has also informed policy thinking at the Race Disparity Unit in the Cabinet Office, where our input was described as 'fundamental to shaping the race disparity audit'. Findings have also been used by the Integration Unit at the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to inform their Empowering Women initiative, where the briefing emphasised the importance of the arts, small-scale initiatives and cross-community initiatives, all of which were present in the final call that was produced. We also briefed the Select Committee on Citizenship and civic engagement in September 2017. We briefed Rotherham Metropolitan Council through the 'Stronger Communities' Forum. The project has directly led to the publication of two books: 'Reimagining Contested Communities' (Policy Press, 2018), which was co-written with the Department of Communities and Local Government, and 'Co-producing Research: a community development approach' (2019). Our book, 'Re-imagining Contested Communities' was launched in May and a senior policy analyst from the DCLG acknowledged that the process of working on the book project with us enabled her to understand how to listen to communities differently. In addition to these published books, over 65 articles have been produced across the consortium. Our work around resilience has provided the impetus for HeadStart, a £10.4 million Big Lottery Fund grant, which is funded to develop the 'Resilience Revolution' in Blackpool. This involves the expansion of Brighton-based social enterprise Boingboing to Blackpool, where it will extend the resilience-building ideas, practices and products co-developed with young people on the Imagine Project, as well as the provision of workforce training in Resilient Therapy throughout Blackpool. On a local level, we have enabled a number of community partners to become researchers in their own right, thereby moving the locus of research from the academy to the communities themselves. Community researchers have moved on to doctorates, and degrees. This has produced a number of local impacts. For example, two community-led publications 'Threads of Time' and 'Herbal Medicine', which draw upon funds of knowledge in local communities, have been widely used across schools Rotherham, and other community-led resources are available on the BoingBoing website (www.boingboing.org.uk). Various local events have been held throughout the life of project. For example, in June 2017, local government officials and arts workers in Rotherham acknowledged changes in their thinking regarding community knowledge. Local work in the North East and Coventry has led to deeper understandings of 'hope' as an important ingredient in working with communities, as well as arts methods including exhibitions and collaborative artistic activities. A major film on Park Hill is on permanent display at Weston Park Museum in Sheffield. Our work has informed RCUK processes and practices. We provided a case study for the AHRC funded 'Common Cause' project which was concerned with the relationship between universities and BAME organisations. A film was shown to key members of RCUK about this which featured our work and collaborations. Catalyst funding provided a conference aimed at community researchers across a number of RCUK funded projects and participants reported changes in their confidence and ability to present their work to external audiences. We have also informed internal university practices. Our project officer, Angela Warren, trialled a new way of paying community partners easily and quickly at the University of Sheffield and this was reported to a central working group set up by Connected Communities. We presented the 'Imagine' project at the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE), and our work has been used within public engagement and civic engagement contexts. Co-production of research has become more widely understood within local, national and international contexts as our work has impacted across policy, practitioner and researcher sectors. An impact case study about our work was published on the ESRC website, and our ethical systems were profiled on the ESRC website. We have informed the direction of further ESRC investments and have been consulted about our work by major funders. In all of the work packages, the university became the catalyst for further initiatives, as a result of the co-production processes initiated by Imagine. Therefore the project has impacted on universities as well as on communities and the wider publics. In Rotherham, Clifton Park Museum have now adopted a co-productive approach to working with BAME communities and young people.

Description Cabinet Office Race Disparity Audit consultation workshop
Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Participation in a national consultation
Impact The Race Disparity Audit initiated by the Prime Minister in 2016 resulted in the creation of https://www.ethnicity-facts-figures.service.gov.uk/ The Imagine project had been in contact with John Connell, civil servant managing the audit data collection process, via a workshop at the NCVO in March 2016 and through a seminar held with BAME organisations organised by Kirklees Local TV, based in Huddersfield. In October 2017, Imagine held a consultation workshop for the race disparity audit, including participants across the day from Kirklees council, the fire service and NGOs. About 40 people participated and contributed to the discussion about the shape and role of the data that would appear on the website. John Connell summarised the impact of the day as follows (letter to Paul Ward, 12 Octover 2017) : "it was great to be reminded of the great work from the Imagine project and I look forward to the final findings from that. What I like about that project and your role bringing together public, private and voluntary sectors at this event is how the University felt like a space the partners in a place could come to develop ideas and action. It felt like the hub of learning for Kirklees and Yorkshire more widely rather than just for your students. I know the ''shared university' is pretty central to the imagine project and have heard about it at presentations before on Imagine - that universities have resources and expertise that can contribute to real-world issues. It really brought it to life at the event, the links from neighbourhoods to internationally, by drawing on the lived knowledge of those outside the university. This model provides a way for Universities to contribute to shaping policy through mobilising knowledge from different perspective. A theme through the day was about the University's partnership with Kirklees Local TV. It was eye opening to notice how Milton can access a range of people, at the same time as benefiting your students through the opportunities he provides. It was great to hear positive feedback and throughout the day it was helpful in looking at what we said at launch. I think some of the messages were ? Having data in one place is helpful but the launch needs to be clear what next and how the data will lead to better outcomes. ? It should link up with other sources where possible for example local authority data which can be richer and show more. ? There is a need for governance and accountability to drive change. ? Non Government Organisations were keen to be part of the solutions rather than being done too. I hope you saw this narrative throughout the coverage at launch. I really appreciate your time and being fundamental to shaping the Race Disparity Audit. The session and your views has really helped shape the policy now and going forward."

Impact The 'Imagine' project led to: • Improved and increased multi-modality of pedagogies, resources and spaces for literacy delivery at Grimm & Co • Heightened awareness of storytelling, traditions and folklore + preferred modes of engagement from Eastern European culture, informing practices and improving inclusivity. • Artefactual literacies and creative use of the arts to engage others to make meaning from children's stories - has become a successful and improved tool for Grimm & Co. • Improved co-production methodologies which are informing and influencing Rotherham's approaches to engaging with children and young people. Rotherham recently won a bid to the Creative People, Creative Places fund for £2 million to engage communities in the arts. This is a participatory project - the practices for this began with your work Kate. This is a monetary outcome but it will also draw in 4 x this amount in match funding + this will engage communities in determining and developing their access to creativity, cultural activities and the arts.

Title Resilience Q-method 
Description . Q-methodology is a rigorous method to refine models such as the Resilience Framework. A set of statements from resilience framework were generated in collaboration with academics, field workers and young people. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human 
Year Produced 2017 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact quite strong interest and request from both academics and practitioners 
 
Title The Resilience Framework 
Description The Resilience Framework is based on Resilient Therapy (RT), the name we've given to the set of ideas and practices originally developed by Angie Hart and Derek Blincow, with help from Helen Thomas. We took the resilience research evidence base and put it together with other sets of ideas gleaned from our practice with very disadvantaged children and families in an NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Clinic. Alongside this, Angie's adoptive parenting knowledge went into the mix and, we've collected experiences from those we are working with in our RT Communities of Practice. We distilled all these different sets of ideas into a handy RT table that summarises our approach and acts as a reminder to people of what's included. Practitioners and parents use the table to plan strategic moves with children. We've also been developing a version of the table for use with adults, and this is where we've got to so far with that, which is still work in progress, the Resilience Framework for adults. All our tables and frameworks are available as pdfs in the Resources section on the boingboing website - it has also been translated into Greek, German, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human 
Year Produced 2011 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact Numerous groups have adopted it and used it in various ways. It has been translated into many different languages and people use it in many countries. See engagmenet sections for more details.

Description Bridge Building (Young people) project, Rotherham by Zanib Rasool 
Organisation Rotherham United Community Sports Trust
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Charity/Non Profit 
PI Contribution Imagine project community researcher, Zanib Rasool, was pivotal in establishing a relationship with the Police Crime Commissioner in Rotherham through her work at Rotherham United Community Sports Trust as a Partnership Development Manager and her links with policy practitioners eg. governing body.
Collaborator Contribution Zanib Rasool, Community Researcher, was successful in obtaining further funding to help build bridges between young people of different faiths living parallel lives in the town of Rotherham.
Impact The outcome of this collaboration is that the Community Researcher submitted a bid to the Police Crime Commissioner and received funding valued at £20,135. The building bridges project will target Rotherham North area which is getting more segregated and creating a culture of them and us leading to undertones of racism in schools and in the community and creating gangs. Through creative methods (film, dance, photography, art, graffiti, poetry and writing) the project will open channel of communication between young people who are on the margins and promote community cohesion. The Imagine project (Rotherham) identified a number of BME young people feeling vulnerable in Rotherham due to racism. This new project will help build resilience of young people and support the knock on effect from the CSE scandal, reduce incidents of in hate crime resulting from Far Right marches and also support Muslim young people to resist Islamic extremist rhetoric. The project will bring young people from Kimberworth Park and Ferham, for example to take part in photography or girls from Wingfield and Masbrough taking part in poetry workshops. Another bridge building activity will be working with Mosques and churches and delivering some workshops in faith buildings so young people are more tolerant of other faiths and breakdown the negative stereotypes especially of Islam which is leading to a rise in islamophobic incidents. Young people will be brought together to celebrate Eid and will take part in a question and answer session with a panel of faith leaders, police, and Hope Not Hate. They will train up young people and raise their awareness of Hate crime and how to report it. They will produce young people friendly posters after the training which will be circulated in schools. Some of the young people work in take-away or family taxi firms so they can be advocates in those settings. Once trained the young people will have knowledge to report themselves if they see an incident on a bus or in town. This will increase reporting and active citizenship.

Title Building Mental Health Resilience Recovery College Course 
Description The co-designed intervention is a mental health Recovery College course - Building Resilience for Well-being and Recovery. The programme comprises 8 2 hours weekly sessions developed by a partnership of peer trainers, a mental health practitioner and an academic. Peer trainers are people with lived experience of mental health problems who are have been recruited and are supported by the local Recovery College which is an established initiative involving a partnership of the health service providers and service user organisations. The programme content draws on an adapted version of the Resilience Framework (Hart et al 2007) and a range of other resilience tools and models alongside the personal, practice and research expertise of the facilitators. It aims to increase participants' resilience to respond on an individual and collective basis to the adversities they face using internal and external resources and supports. The Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is the principle funder of the Peer Trainer and mental health practitioner time and course resources. The University of Brighton has funded the time of the academic staff input. 
Type Health and Social Care Services
Current Stage Of Development Late clinical evaluation
Year Development Stage Completed 2015
Development Status Under active development/distribution
Impact The 8 week course has now been run a total of 5 times across 2 sites attended by approximately 50 people with mental health problems. Initial evaluation (from rating scales and interviews) suggests participants gained both an increased understanding of resilience and capacity to make resilience 'moves' in response to challenges related to mental health problems. The Peer Trainers - who are involved in other Recovery College courses - have also reported the level of collaboration in design and delivery to be of a 'gold standard' setting a bench mark for other courses. The collaboration has also developed the research capacity of the Peer Trainers who were very valued active participants in the first research conference/event that they had ever attended - The Imagine Project conference/workshops in Huddersfield 2015.

Results and Impact The speaker presented to a mixed audience of 25 people about her research into Applied Theatre projects, the Academic Resilience Approach (ARA) (Hart and Williams, 2014) and mental health care provision for children and young people in schools, which led her to examine the potential of Applied Theatre practices to create opportunities for relational resilience and to support young people to understand and address their own issues and concerns in secondary schools. The speaker hopes that such projects will be part of long-term social investment in schools, teachers and children. The session gave a brief definition of Applied Theatre and its connection through a social inclusion perspective with the ARA. Drawing on the theory and practice of Paulo Freire, contemporary theatre projects - 'Brainstorm' and 'The Happiness Project', and practical drama schemes of work, the session highlighted the potential (and problems) for projects in secondary schools from Helen's experiences as a drama practitioner. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session. One delegate was from Blackpool, another a PhD student from Brazil. Slides are available from the Boingboing website.

Drawing on their own experiences in co-productive research, as well as the experiences of those attending the session, they discussed ways in which individuals and communities can be supported to make 'resilient moves' aimed at transforming not just individuals but also the communities, organisations and environments in which we all live and work.

The programme is a universal, preventative project run for 10-weeks in primary schools to whole classes with teaching staff also being engaged. It embeds Boingboing's Resilience Framework used across Blackpool and aims to equip the children and young people with practical strategies they can use when times get tough. It's unique in that the programme is fully co-produced with children and young people through YPEG (Young People's Executive Group) in Blackpool. The presentation provided the audience with information about the Bounce Forward programme, its development and sustainability in Blackpool and its future both in Blackpool and Lancashire. It was also a chance for the audience to see the programme in action and a chance to celebrate the achievements we have made and continue to make. A question and answer section took place at the end, followed by a more informal discussion and networking session for anybody interested. People signed up to the mailing list to hear about future events and outputs. People who couldn't attend were able to download the presentation slides from the website.

Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Professional Practitioners
Results and Impact The speakers presented to a mixed audience of 42 people about their 'Building Resilience for Wellbeing and Recovery' course, which was co-developed by peer trainers, practitioners and an academic. Peer trainers are people with lived experience of mental health problems trained as tutors by a mental health Recovery College - in this case 'The Sussex Recovery College'. Mental health Recovery Colleges use an educative approach to addressing mental health challenges - aiming to empower people in a non-stigmatising way. They used the Resilience Framework and their personal, practice and research expertise to design the 8 session long course. It aimed to increase people's resilience to respond to mental health challenges using people's inner strengths and support around them. In line with a social justice approach to resilience the course emphasised that there are some adversities (such as stigma and discrimination towards people with mental health problems) that need to be challenged and not simply 'coped with'. Over 800 people have now completed the course which is in its 6th year, which has seen the development of a shorter 'online' version. This was in response to the challenges of COVID-19 but has potential for future use too. The session shared the speakers' experiences and evaluations - including of the advantages and disadavantages of the online version. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session. One delegate was from Singapore and one from India.

Primary Audience Professional Practitioners
Results and Impact This joint Centre of Resilience for Social Justice (CRSJ)/Boingboing Resilience Forum explored the process of co-producing a policy document around how young people could implement strategies and be aided at the political level, to be more resilient to drought.

The forum was about our GCRF project on 'Patterns of resilience to drought' and how this project supported the application of youth voices in relation to drought in South Africa. This is an extremely important issue and of great relevance to the ODA.

The presenters spoke about three topics during this forum: the co-productive methods used in the project; the findings of the research, which reflected how the young South African co-researchers defined drought severity; finally, what additional support would be useful for young people living in drought conditions. They shared the co-produced policy brief and film, using this as a springboard to discuss the implications for future policy and research.

The attendees also got the opportunity to try a co-research activity, to immerse themselves in the experience, which helped to showcase our work to a wider political audience.

Results and Impact In June 2018 a group of academic researchers from Sheffield and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), and representatives from the Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation (GMCVO) and the Children's Society met to introduce each other and share some sandwiches and ideas. A second meeting was then organised by GMCVO in September 2018, which provided an opportunity to find out more about GMCVO's Talent Match programme. Here we were joined by people from Manchester Museum, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and Greater Manchester Youth Network. On 11th January, the group met for a third time, with the intention of sharing practices, networks and ideas. The range of participants again expanded, with people from Barnados, Blaze, Reclaim, and the Canal & Rivers Trust. MMU provided a venue, stepping in when the Children's Society's office relocation prevented them co-hosting. The session was lightly structured, with facilitation shared between Beth, Kate, and Jo Hunt, GM Area Manager for the Children's Society. We exchanged a variety of lessons learned, as those present shared reflections on their experience of and interests in co-production with young people.

Results and Impact This blog introduces the work of an autistic Early Career Researcher based at the Centre of Resilience for Social Justice, University of Brighton. In the past, academic researchers would talk about autistic impairments in social communication: they used to believe that autistic people weren't able to communicate very well in that way. But now we understand much better that this isn't really a very fair way of seeing things. Difficulties in communication that can happen between autistic and non-autistic speakers are the responsibility of non-autistic people just as much as autistic people because communication is a two-way street. Her PhD work explored this, and thought about why these communication breakdowns might be happening.

Results and Impact Hardly a minute goes by without a mention of resilience at the moment; in the press, on the telly and across the virtual spaces in which many of us are spending far more time than is good for us. We are pretty familiar with lots of resilience discussions. Resilience is what we do. Our mission rings especially true at the moment - "working together as staff, volunteers and friends from all walks of life, to beat the odds and change the odds through resilience research and practice". Everyone in our global community is facing major challenges because of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. So, it's not surprising that lots of people have been in touch with us for ideas about how best to build or promote resilience. This blog explains how our community is responding to the coronavirus crisis. What we've been up to, some tips on supporting people's resilience, a reminder to think of those facing the most disadvantage and an outline of what you can expect from us in the coming weeks and months.

Results and Impact The poor job security and low wages faced by many young workers was already a concern for us even before the coronavirus pandemic, which is why we set up our wages campaign - 'same pay for the same day'. Together with 7 other young members of the Resilience Revolution, Danielle and Adam surveyed over 400 young people in Blackpool to get their views on employment. The survey revealed that even when coronavirus wasn't a concern, two fifths of young people felt they were underpaid, a third weren't earning enough money to live on and virtually none were getting paid overtime. Inspired by these insights, the campaign team set out five ways to improve things. Now, in the context of coronavirus, the need for the real Living Wage is becoming even more apparent as the crisis shines a light on the inadequacy of key workers' wages. As we stand on our doorsteps clapping for the NHS, we find ourselves wondering how many of the millions of people clapping with us are aware that so many care workers' wages don't even meet the daily costs of living? This blog explains that supporting the campaign for a real Living Wage offers us one way to show appreciation for key workers that has the potential to make a genuine difference in people's lives for years to come.

Results and Impact The speaker presented to a mixed audience of 30 people, his findings that a considerable amount of mental distress work is undertaken in organizations and services in our communities and are not rationalised as mental health interventions. The session explored the transformation of mental distress from the exotic unknowable requiring technologies of government and self, available only through Psy practitioners, to a fundamentally social feature of modern living, drawing upon a number of empirical case studies around the UK where opportunities, comfort, a sense of meaning and social support are facilitated for suffering people in a way that statutory and biomedical services find difficult, where environments are presented that provide experiences of help, identity transformation and community without waiting behind a glass partition. Carl suggested a need to step outside the statutory and community institutions of mainstream mental health to explore the ways in which the amelioration of suffering can meaningfully occur through alternative social contexts and community arenas. The presentation was followed by a Q&A. The slides and a blog post about the session are available from the Boingboing website.

Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Professional Practitioners
Results and Impact The speaker presented to a mixed audience of 37 students (of all ages), educators, carers, academics, community workers, policy makers and others with a passion to see individuals with a disability succeed in education. Through lively discussion, this session explored findings from "Arriving at Thriving: Learning from Disabled students to ensure access for all", a report by Policy Connect and the Higher Education Commission (October, 2020). This report arose from a public inquiry into the experiences of disabled students in higher education (i.e. college, university, etc.). It makes clear that current supports are not working as well as they could, and recommends that those with disabilities be involved in seeing things change. This session was co-produced with the author of the report (Megan Hector), and one of its contributors (Mirika Flegg). Megan shared some of the findings and offered some information around submitting to inquiries. Mirika spoke about her own experiences of disability and education, and explored the links between activism and resilience. Speakers and audience collectively discussed what a unified disability support pathway across ALL LEVELS of education may look like, a very timely discussion. On December 22, 2020, the Women and Equalities Committee released its "Fourth report: Unequal impact? Coronavirus, disability and access to services". It highlighted systematic challenges with SEND provision and called for a complete restructuring of educational supports. The government's forthcoming National Strategy for Disabled People is expected to spell out details. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session. One delegate was from Brazil, and one from Singapore.
