who is it for?
The toolkit can be used by any individual or organisation wanting to learn more about working with young people who have experienced the care or custody systems and about working with ‘PIE’ (Psychologically Informed Environments).
When we consulted with young people, they told us that they experienced a lack of understanding from adults in all kinds of everyday situations. From GP practices to the Jobcentre, from employers to schoolteachers - many professionals come into contact with young people from these backgrounds and may have little insight into how their experiences make it difficult for them to engage in the same ways as some of their peers. The resources in Co Produced Resources were designed with young people, and focus on building confidence and skills in colleagues and organisations.
The toolkit also provides resources for those considering service design, with independent evaluations of all aspects of the work undertaken as part of the Future 4 Me project.
How to use it
The resources are free to use and do not require registration. They are provided for the purpose of equipping adults to work more effectively with young people who have experienced care or custody.
