My name is Jay Haston. I am an expert lived experience advisor and trauma informed consultant. My background is steeped in ACEs since age 2 and a half, and a very difficult adult life. I founded the ACE Awareness campaign on Facebook and opened the first peer support groups for male and female survivors. I helped charities such as Neil's Hugs and Wellbeing Scotland to set up groups in local communities. I worked with Andys Man Club to create clubs in West Lothian. I help run Hearts of ACE - a WAVE supported peer support group for male and female survivors with lived and learned experience which offers a pathway to a purpose and empowerment. I am honoured to join WAVE Trust's Board of Trustees.
