Complete our eLearning today and become ACEs aware!


Action on ACEs Gloucestershire has developed a 15 minute eLearning package to help communities and organisations become aware of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences).


Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are specified traumatic events occurring before the age of 18 years. High or frequent exposure to ACEs, without the support of a trusted adult can lead to toxic stress. There is a large body of evidence that shows the adversity we experience as children can affect us into adulthood. Developing resilience through access to a trusted adult in childhood, supportive friends, positive social connections and being engaged in community activities has been shown to improve outcomes even in those who experience high levels of ACEs.


Action on ACEs Gloucestershire’s mission is to build communities and organisations that are aware of ACEs, talk about ACEs and take action on ACEs. The eLearning has been a collaborative project commissioned by Gloucestershire County Council’s Early Years Service, developed by Action on ACEs and produced by Kava Communications. It will give people an introduction to the science of ACEs, resilience and show ways to take action.


You will find the eLearning package on the Action on ACEs website:
