Over the last year I have been working with the team from Barnardo’s Eduction Community to create a series of resources for their website.
Barnardo’s Education Community has been developed to connect professionals working in education settings across Early Years, Schools, Further Education and Universities. It provides access to online trauma informed resources with a focus on loss, grief and bereavement to support the children and young people.
The materials have been designed to support educators in facilitating difficult conversations with children and young people around general wellbeing and provide staff, children and young people with a structure/scaffold to explore complicated emotions and feelings.
The team gave me a rough idea of what they were looking for and I designed the materials using their logo and colour palette. We wanted to create materials that would work for the children and young people and that their teachers and trusted adults would find useful.
Here are a few examples and more can be found on the website www.educators-barnardos.org.uk
