Strength Cards

Safety Net is pleased to launch a new resource, the Safety Net strength cards which have been developed from our resilience building work with children in primary schools.  We wanted to produce cards that were bright and colourful and would appeal to children, so who better to ask to draw the images than children themselves.  There are 36 laminated, coloured cards representing strengths that children chose to describe the attributes and qualities that they felt good, confident and proud of in themselves.  The cards can be used for 1:1 and group work.  The pack costs £20 (postage included).  Please download an order form here Order Form
