ACE Aware Wales

We're making Wales a Leader in tackling and preventing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

The ACE Support Hub has been set up by a voluntary collaboration of organisations called Cymru Well Wales, to support you in making changes that make Wales a leader in tackling and preventing ACEs. Working with you, our mission is to share ideas and learning, and to challenge and change ways of working so together, we break the cycle of ACEs.

Adverse Childhood Experiences are traumatic events, particularly those in early childhood that significantly affect the health and wellbeing of people in Wales, the rest of the UK and the world.

We can break the cycle of ACEs at any stage: it’s never too late. Preventing ACEs in a single generation or reducing their impacts can benefit not only those children but also future generations in Wales.

Our 5 Goals
  • Sharing information and knowledge about ACES, listening and working together with communities, children and families to find solutions that will work.
  • Sharing evidence about what organisations can do differently to help prevent and mitigate ACEs.
  • Developing knowledge and skills among professionals, providing training for them to challenge internal and external networks and drive change.
  • Learning from each other, and sharing information that leads to action.
  • Driving change by challenging ways of working, throughout Wales.
