The Journey of Recovery
This animation has been developed for professionals within education as an introduction to trauma and recovery, and to facilitate the work they do in supporting students who have been affected by trauma.
The animation was commissioned by the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund (WLMEF); the charity set up after the Manchester Arena attack on 22 May 2017. Trustees of the WLMEF recognised that there were many young people caught up in the Arena attack and heard reports of the challenges they faced returning to school, college or university.
The Trustees wanted to help professionals across educational settings better understand how trauma might impact their students and it was decided that a short animation would be an accessible way of beginning to do this. It is hoped that this animation will be a lasting legacy of the WLMEF.
