Are you equipped to respond to children who have experienced trauma?
Over two thirds of a UK classroom has suffered one or more adverse childhood experiences. This can manifest in challenging and harmful behaviours, negatively impacting the child, their community and those around them. Cherished's outstanding ACE Training improves professional practice and our ability to care for vulnerable children and adults.
“As part of our continuing commitment to empowering young women in the Midlands and creating a trauma informed society, we now offer Adverse Childhood Experience training to volunteers and professionals working with children.”
I am grateful that volunteering with Cherished has given me the opportunity to learn about ACEs and use this understanding in my everyday interactions.
