We are Resilience Learning Partnership

Working with private, public and third sector organisations, Resilience Learning Partnership delivers bespoke training and education programmes, collaborates on research and feeds into strategic planning with a focus on lived experience and psychological trauma.

Our work emphasises the invaluable knowledge and insight that people with lived experience can provide, and how this can be used to effect meaningful change and widen perception and understanding of lived experience.

Lived experience refers to a representation of the experiences and choices of a given person, and the knowledge that they gain from these experiences and choices.

What is Lived Experience?

Experiences that arise from situations that one may find themselves in, by choice or by circumstance, lead to knowledge and wisdom that we term ‘lived experience‘. While widely associated with trauma, lived experience can be derived from any multitude of life events, including ones upbringing, experiences of statutory services, health conditions, etc.
