Resilience in Leeds

28 Jun 2019   |   Ann-Marie Walker   |   Springwell Leeds

In Leeds we are on a mission to:

  • Raise awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
  • Help people to understand the impact of ACEs on brain development
  • Understand the relevance of toxic stress and how this might be presented in the children we work with.

But most importantly to motivate and inspire the community to come together and create a call to action!

That is why we are hosting three community events across the city for services and agencies in Leeds to join us in a free showing of ‘The Resilience Movie‘ about the  biology of stress and the science of hope. We have approximately 200 professionals signed up to attend!

As quoted in the movie:

if you can get this into the hands of the general population, they will invent some very wise solutions’

But it doesn’t stop there. Wellspring leaders Ann-Marie Walker, Verity Watts and Emma Beveridge will be delivering a free one day conference later in the year for leaders across the Trust in Barnsley, Leeds and Lincolnshire as we start a movement…. Watch this space!
