Support to strengthen

Children and young people are amongst the most vulnerable in our society when it comes to the impact of adverse circumstances on their lives. 

Adverse childhood experience can have impacts on the development and mental health of children and young people that may persist into adulthood and affect their life chances. These might be personal circumstances such as the death or divorce of parents or domestic violence, for example, or national and international disasters.
