WAVE Trust develops and pioneers research-based solutions to transform the futures of children, breaking cycles of disadvantage.
Our main goal is to reduce the adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) of child abuse, neglect and children witnessing domestic violence by (at least) 70% by 2030. We call this '70/30'.
Current systems do not prevent problems. Prevention means understanding and addressing the root causes. Those root causes are most often adverse childhood experiences.
The tide is turning. Join us.
Since early 2018, we've been supporting local activists in their aims to transform their towns, cities and counties into trauma-informed communities.
Abuse, neglect and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) often transmit from generation to generation. At least half the children in an average classroom will suffer ACEs. We must focus on prevention if we want peaceful, hardworking, healthy citizens.
From the perpetrators and victims they engage with, to the stress they experience, police officers encounter trauma on a daily basis.
Children succeed in school when their challenges are understood, and when the school is trauma-informed and responsive.
Trauma affects the likelihood of a person going to prison, acting violently whilst there, and returning to prison after release. We can stop this cycle.
