Empower children to seek help and assist children in the development of new skills which will help build resilience.

Oh Lila is the story of Lila, an adventurous young hare who breaks the rules and gets herself into trouble before seeking help from the wise old hare. The moral of Lila’s story is that if children get into trouble or make a mistake, it is always better to speak to someone they trust to help them.

The story aims to build resilience and protective factors. It promotes social support through raising awareness of how to resolve a problem and develops the self-belief to do so.

Whilst the resource does not mention alcohol, it has been primarily developed to support children and young people who are affected by someone else's drinking. However, it can easily be used as a basis to introduce issues such as female genital mutilation (FGM), child sexual exploitation and domestic violence, through encouraging children to talk to someone they trust if they are worried.

The Oh Lila resource pack provides a range of materials based on the characters and themes of the Oh Lila story and is a flexible and interactive tool that can be used whilst working with children to empower them to seek help, be able to identify adults who can provide that help and to assist in the development of new skills which will help build resilience.

Details
