In collaboration with The Usual Place (TUP), researchers from the University of Glasgow have been exploring the concept of fostering resilience in young people with additional support needs. Specifically exploring how the place in which these young people work (TUP), has helped them throughout difficult times in their lives.
We would like to invite you to an evening where researchers will present their most recent research findings, you’ll hear from some of The Usual Place alumni and the floor will be opened for a relaxed discussion of how these ideas might be used in wider contexts.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has shown, it is essential that we build robust skills. This way we can be prepared for, respond to and recover from the challenges presented by the unpredictability that affects each and every one of us throughout our lives.
The ability to be resilient – to successfully adapt and swiftly recover from life’s adversities, has been closely linked to overall wellbeing. Yet, for those with additional support needs, there is a distinct lack of research in this area. This is especially concerning considering how those with disabilities were disproportionately affected by the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
