ACE in Liverpool

“Our aim is to strengthen and coordinate responsiveness to ACEs in Liverpool to build an ACE resilient city where children are less likely to experience ACEs, where children and families have support and resilience through adversity and where adults are supported to mitigate the potential impact of their own ACEs on their own health and wellbeing and that of their families.  Ultimately our aim is for children and families to have longer, healthier and happier lives.”
