ACE Hub Cymru
Life during the pandemic was a difficult time for everyone, especially for our young people, with many experiencing isolation, stress and anxiety. COVID-19 exacerbated the experience of children who are at risk of ACEs or are experiencing them in the home. Lack of access to school friends, teachers, social workers and the safe space and services that schools provide meant more children were unable to have their voices heard or access support/protective factors.
Supporting organisations to embed ACE Awareness and Trauma and ACE Informed Practice
Everyone has a role to play in Wales becoming an ACE and trauma-informed nation. The TrACE toolkit has been developed as a resource to support people, organisations, sectors and systems to develop their own ACE and trauma-informed approach. It focuses on building into, not onto, existing good practice and identifying where improvements and changes can be made to polices, practice, culture and environment.
An Evidence Review and Mapping Exercise
The ACE Hub Wales, is part of the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre (WHO CC) in Public Health Wales and funded by the Welsh Government. The Hub was founded in 2017.
With almost half the people in Wales having experienced an ACE during childhood, our objective was to start changing attitudes towards those who have experienced ACEs and create a more “ACE aware Wales” by encouraging people to be compassionate and understand that everyone can play a role in building resilience in children.
The ACE Hub Wales team are passionate about the ACE agenda and supporting the nation to become ACE aware and trauma-informed in practice.
