Adenydd logoAdenydd support families whose children have been affected by adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) which has resulted in developmental trauma. They also support the professionals involved with these families including schools.

Adenydd run a number of projects with families, professionals and schools to increase understanding of the children’s needs so that they can be better supported to survive and thrive and thus reach their potential.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on so many children, families, professionals and schools. Adenydd know that for some children and families this time has brought new or additional trauma and that it will continue to mean challenges for all involved. The support and training that Adenydd offer is now needed more than ever.

They want to help children to survive and thrive through having better support from trained and knowledgeable parents/carers and professionals.

What will you be doing?

The trustees of Adenydd are seeking people to join them in their work; people who have an inclusive approach and a sense of moral responsibility and service to families, children and those who support them.

Vision and commitment to supporting those impacted by adverse childhood experiences and developmental trauma are essential. Current trustees have extensive experience in health and social care and education, on both a paid and voluntary basis.

Adenydd also have trustees with lived experience and those who are experts through experience.

Adenydd have developed rapidly and need to grow our capacity and provision in order to meet the need that continues to grow in our community and across the nation. They have a passion for their work and the range of projects and training that they can offer.

They are looking to recruit more volunteers and Associates to support this growth and development and would like additional Trustees to enable them to do this professionally and in a planned and manageable way.

What are they looking for?

Adenydd are currently looking for new trustees that have skills or experience in one or more of the following areas: growing a charity, business and the private sector, enterprise/business development, corporate sector experience/networks.

They are looking for trustees who want to do and/or to guide:

  • They would particularly like to hear from care experienced people and/or those who have lived experience of developmental trauma, either personally or through supporting someone with developmental trauma
  • They have identified the need to include Welsh speakers who have a clear knowledge and understanding of developmental trauma and its impact on children and families.
  • They would particularly welcome interest from those who have experience in growing a charity, as this is an exciting time in the development of Adenydd.
  • They would like to maintain the diversity of the board and therefore would particularly like to hear from ethnic minorities, younger people, people with different abilities and marginalised groups.
