Building awareness in Merseyside
Ariel Trust is an educational charity that aims to build young people's resilience and resistance skills.
This is so that they can better manage the risks they face in their everyday lives. They specialise in co-creating skills-based prevention education resources with young people using an approach that is based on academic evidence about what works.
Funding helped make young people and communities safer by developing a resilience building education programme for schools.
Evaluation data from partner schools showed important changes in children’s critical thinking skills, for example, there was a 16% increase in response to the statement - ‘When someone sends me information, I always ask myself is this fact or opinion?'
