#BeWell learning Resources 

In the past year, OFC has been working with partners to develop a new collaborative way of working, to bring the best of creative and education practice to bear on new approaches to improving wellbeing. To date, nearly 400 children and young people aged 2-16 from Brighton & Hove have taken part in the #BeWell programme. 

Co-development was key to ensuring that projects were tailored to meet identified needs and that wellbeing, as well as creative outcomes were met; and we have been working closely with the Brighton City Partnership for Education and a number of the city’s secondary schools. Projects were co-developed and co-delivered by teachers and creative practitioners and included opportunities for continuing professional development, joint reflection and peer learning.

In order to capture the learning from the programme, identify successful models and resources that can be shared, OFC have compiled an evaluation report that draws on feedback from creative practitioners and organisations, teachers, children and young people; collected at the start, during and after each project. The report also provides evidence to support the case for utilising creative experiences as a means to improve wellbeing.
