Resilient Kids

Connection, choices and support for flood-affected schools, young people & their families.

We provide a range of mental health and social and emotional wellbeing activities to build the resilience of flood-affected young people (aged 8–18 years) in the Northern Rivers Region.

Our goals are simple:

  • Power to choose: We coach young people how to make positive choices that improve wellbeing and how to be a supportive friend.
  • Ready for anything: We build confidence in young people so they can handle setbacks – and bounce back from tough situations.
  • Helping hands: We offer counselling and support and let them know it’s okay to ask for help.
  • Support for parents and carers: We help parents and carers support their kids emotionally and socially.
  • Community fun: We support connection through fun activities for everyone to get involved in.
  • Together as one: We know everyone in our community has a role in supporting our kids.
  • Easy access: We make it easy for kids and families to access services.
  • Teamwork: We work together with other support services to provide a safety net.
