During November and December 2019 Action on ACEs Gloucestershire ran a second awareness  survey of professionals and organisations in the county to get a snapshot of current awareness levels of ACEs and to see what work is already underway.

In summary:

  • 205 respondents completed the survey.
  • Respondents included professionals working in  education, health, local authority, charities, housing, police and community groups.
  • 91.6% of respondents had heard of ACEs compared to  2018 with 76.4%, which is marked improvement.
  • Since 2019 more people are talking and listening during their interactions, as well as increasing their awareness on what ACEs are. There has been a reduction in discussing the impact of ACEs and getting people to talk about their feelings.
