Funded by The Welsh Government, ACE Aware Wales have this week launched their #TimeToBeKind campaign.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are traumatic situations occurring during childhood that cause children to suffer. These experiences can harm children through physical abuse, or also through the types of homes they live in.
ACE Support Wales state on their website:
"Almost half the people in Wales have had an ACE. One in seven people in Wales has had more than four ACEs. (To read Wales ACEs research, please click here). ACEs aren’t just about children; they affect people of all ages and cross every social boundary."
The campaign encourages people not to judge, but to be kind in the hope that a child can be helped. You can watch the campaign video here. Please help and be kind where you can, and share this message so that across Bridgend we can make sure we are doing our bit. Thank you.
