Boingboing is a Community Interest Company dedicated to working together as staff, volunteers and friends from all walks of life to beat the odds and change the odds through resilience research and practice. Our approach has been adopted and embedded across a wide range of contexts in Britain and globally, including schools, social work, public health sectors, NHS and local authorities. Most excitingly, Blackpool’s ‘Resilience Revolution’ is galvanizing the whole town. Boingboing was set up in 2010 and has grown into a community of practitioners, families, academics and volunteers led by Professor Angie Hart. We work in tandem with the Centre of Resilience for Social Justice at the University of Brighton. We run Resilience Forums, develop Resilience Frameworks, books, training tools and other materials, and offer training, workshops and talks on resilient approaches to life’s challenges. We aim to be inclusive and we provide many free resources on our website.
Childhood Tumour Trust is a small charity that supports children, young people and their families affected by Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1). We are passionate about bringing families and children together so that they are not isolated and to know that they are not on their own. We do this via days out and special camps for the children – in the UK and in the USA. We have a campaign to help diagnose NF1 early – by documenting Cafe au Lait (coffee coloured) marks in the ‘Red Book. 6 or more marks is a strong indicator that a child will have the condition. We have produced a Body Map to document any birth marks which should will help with earlier diagnosis of NF1, other conditions with ‘birth’ marks, Mongolian Blue Spot and help with safeguarding. We hope to have these as standard in every red book – paper and e version. We are also aiming to raise the profile and improve awareness of the condition with medics as for a condition that is more prevalent than Cystic Fibrosis, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and Huntingtons Disease combined so few know much about it. Benign tumours are often played down but their impact can be just as devestating as malignant tumours and we feel that many of those with NF1 are often not given the care they should be having. – To aid this we have also produced an insert on NF1 for the ‘Red’ Book. – available directly from us.
