Rock Pool to deliver ACEs Recovery Toolkits and other training for Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton Councils
We are pleased to announce that Rock Pool will be delivering Adult, Children and Young People Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Recovery Toolkits, Trauma and ACE Awareness training, and Train the Trainers courses for Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton Councils, and other organisations who work with people who have experienced trauma, through funding received from the Home Office.
Michael Lane, Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire, said:
“I am delighted that we have secured national funding for this partnership project.
“By coming together with colleagues at Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton Councils, plus many community and voluntary organisations that work tirelessly to support vulnerable young people, we will be able to offer a more comprehensive, targeted and intuitive approach to helping young people deal with trauma.
“Traumatic experiences may result in a young person becoming withdrawn, distressed, adopting risky behaviours, self-harming or going missing. It is essential that professionals can identify the early signs and are specifically trained in being ‘ACE aware and trauma-informed’ to ensure that the right support is available at the right time for young people and their families.”
Rock Pool’s Creative Director, Sue Penna, said:
“We are delighted to be part of this partnership and know that the work that is being developed will make a real difference to peoples lives.”
