Improving lives, promoting hope
trauma is widespread & its impact is felt across society
Childhood trauma is linked to mental and physical health problems, homelessness, school and social exclusion, and addiction in adulthood. More than 7 in 10 adults had experienced at least one childhood traumatic event, or Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE). Over 3 in 10 people have experienced four or more of these events, and this can have a devastating effect on the life chances of the individual.
Trauma needs to be more widely understood
To improve the lives of the people they help, public and voluntary sector providers must know more about trauma, its impact, and the simple changes they could make to help those affected. Trauma informed care aims to acknowledge and understand the causes and effects of childhood trauma and to create environments and services that promote resilience and healing.
Trauma Informed Care can help
Trauma Informed Care CIC is a UK social enterprise which provides training, consultancy and support services to organisations across the public and voluntary sectors to help them in this vital task.
