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.
