Action on ACEs Gloucestershire
Action on ACEs Gloucestershire is a unique collaboration between public sector, voluntary and community organisations. Our mission is to build communities that are aware of ACEs, talk about ACEs and take action on ACEs.
Building resilient communities
Almost 250 people joined us for our inaugural More than ACEs conference on 8 November 2018. Delegates from the statutory sector, voluntary and community organisations attended to hear from local and international voices. Amongst the brilliant speakers on the day was UNICEF representative Ben Perks who urged everyone to play their part in taking Action on ACEs.
