Following the successful launch and implementation of FRAIT (Family Resilience Assessment Instrument and Tool) in Wales (2017), we will be showcasing the latest developments with a view to building an international network for addressing family resilience.

A full programme for the day will be shared with delegates in due course.

There are 120 places available and these will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. It is free to attend the event, but if you book and do not attend there will be a fee of £50.

If your organisation wishes to have a free display stand, please get in touch with the organisers, familyresilience@southwales.ac.uk.

FRAIT, the Family Resilience Assessment Instrument and Tool created by health visitors for health visitors to use in their daily practice. The FRAIT comprises of the FRAI (Family Resilience Assessment Instrument) and the FRAT (Family Resilience Assessment Tool), both of which form an evidenced based assessment for health visitors in their daily practice. Its purpose is to assist health visitors in decision making, care planning and planning for further interventions and resources. Using this standardised approach can help to provide an opening with families to discuss resilience and its protective factors.
