Worth-it Positive Education CIC
We are the UK’s leading provider of Positive Psychology in Education. We develop positive mental health and support children and young people to flourish.
Worth-it is dedicated to preventing mental health problems through developing positive mental health and wellbeing.
We know this is a big aim and what started out as direct work with children and young people has now grown to specialise in training and workforce development, resource and toolkit development and whole school and community approaches to developing resilience and wellbeing.
Worth-it was founded with the aim to apply evidence-based approaches of coaching psychology and positive psychology to create real change and prevent mental health problems. This developed into our innovative approach to early intervention and prevention through improving wellbeing and developing positive mental health.
We are passionate about creating sustainable social impact. We want the impact of our work to continue to grow, benefiting as many children and young people as possible to gain skills that improve resilience and wellbeing. To ensure maximum impact we decided to focus on indirectly supporting children and young people through upskilling professionals, teachers and schools. We now specialise in early intervention programme development, train the trainer and resource toolkits.
We have a focus on collaboration with partner organisations. We work with partners to develop early intervention programmes that support the development of positive mental health and wellbeing in children and young people in a range of complementary sectors, such as education, community, health, criminal justice and employability.
These values inspire all our work:
Integrity– An honest approach which has been founded on a robust evidence base, upholding organisational ethics. Striving for excellence and always improving.
Legacy– Developing real change, making a sustainable difference for children and young people now and in future, equipping schools. A commitment to large-scale social impact.
Collaboration- Working with organisations, partners, commissioners and schools. Being voice led, involving children and young people, using their ideas and influence in the creation of all interventions and approaches.
Empowerment- A belief in the ability of others to improve, grow and flourish. Enabling professionals, schools, organisations, children and young people to develop skills, strategies, tools and resources that improve wellbeing and resilience.
