National i-THRIVE Community of Practice members have held many events over the last year and a half to introduce people from their localities to i-THRIVE. The best events so far have been the ones that have managed to get representation from across the system (CAMHS, local authority, schools, charities) and families, children and young people themselves.
Below are some resources to support initial engagement with i-THRIVE.
Provides a general overview of the National i-THRIVE Programme.
Provides introductions to the THRIVE Framework and the National i-THRIVE Programme.
Provides introductions to the THRIVE Framework and the National i-THRIVE Programme and includes an exercise for use at a whole-system engagement event.
Provides a concise overview of the key principles of the THRIVE Framework and how to implement them.
This video is of Miranda Wolpert providing a short, 5-minute introduction to the THRIVE Framework.
Brief overview of the i-THRIVE Programme
You can download and print a one-page overview of the National i-THRIVE Programme here to take to events or distribute to colleagues in your service or agency.
You can also download a longer overview of the National i-THRIVE Programme for a more detailed insight into the programme.
Mapping current provision against the THRIVE Framework needs based groupings
Implementing the THRIVE Framework can feel like a big undertaking but there are many principles of the Framework and aspects of implementation that will already be in place in your area or are being addressed by current or planned initiatives. It can help to have these mapped out against the core components of the THRIVE Framework, each needs-based grouping.
The slides can be printed out and used as a group exercise during initial engagement sessions with staff to map out recent service developments according to which THRIVE Framework needs grouping they relate to. Click here to download it.
- Here is a useful case study created with Seven Sisters Primary School in Haringey, who undertook the mapping exercise with their pastoral team and a local voluntary sector organisation.
Developing local definitions of the THRIVE Framework needs based groupings workshop
The National i-THRIVE Programme have developed a workshop to support whole system understanding of the five THRIVE Framework needs based groupings through the development of locally owned definitions for each of the needs based groupings. Once the workshop has been completed local cross sector definitions for each of the needs based groupings will have been developed to support having a whole system shared language and with the local implementation of the THRIVE Framework.
The slides can be used for a group exercise during initial engagement sessions with cross sector staff.
Values, behaviours and culture change workshop
This workshop was created to help sites to understand what needs to be in place to enable the THRIVE Framework to be embedded across the system. The workshop is best suited to a cross sector event that includes representation from health, education, social care and the voluntary sector and is a good follow up to the ‘Developing local definitions of the THRIVE Framework needs based grouping’ workshop.
