The Thrive Approach delivers a wide range of benefits for local authorities, including building in-house capacity, and reducing both referrals to overstretched services and the need for expensive interventions.
As a result, Thrive is used by many local authorities to improve the life chances for the children and young people in their communities.
The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) estimates that the cost of exclusion in England is around £370,000 per young person in lifetime education, healthcare and criminal justice costs. These young people are also ten times more likely to suffer recognised mental health problems.
Mental health is high on the government’s agenda following the pandemic, but sustainable, long-term support will be vital in helping young people recover from the challenges of the past year – and prevent the risk of young people dropping out of education and requiring more expensive interventions later in life.
Although every Local Authority has its own requirements and objectives, there is one simple route you can follow to start your Thrive journey today.
The route below can be adjusted to accommodate different budget levels and setting types while allowing you to implement Thrive in settings as a whole school approach.
Start your Thrive journey by joining over 2600 settings in the UK already using Thrive to improve the emotional wellbeing and attainment of the children and young people in their setting.
