Ellie is totally committed to supporting the ‘Blackpool HeadStart Resilience Revolution’, a whole town approach to making Blackpool a more resilient place to live, grow and thrive in. Ellie has volunteered across many initiatives and sits on the Young Peoples Executive Group, which has the final say on what projects are adopted.
She is part of the digital team supporting young people sharing stories via the Resilience Revolution online and was also on the fundraising committee for Resilience Pathway, built through the town and now a permanent fixture.
Ellie is also part of a group called the Resilience Researchers, volunteering her time to conduct youth-led research projects about issues important to young people in the community. As an example, Ellie conducted a small research project to identify activities that young people in the town like to do. This research was then used to help adults caring for young people and adult volunteers, to build better relationships with young people, by planning activities that they can do together and enjoy.
For the last 3 years Ellie has been dedicated to making a difference in her local community and encourages others to do the same. Ellie volunteers all her spare time to making a difference in Blackpool.
