Adenydd is a local charity that aims to help schools, practitioners and families to understand and support children who have experienced adverse childhood experiences.

We are currently recruiting new trustees, volunteers and Associates.

Children with developmental trauma often have great difficulty regulating themselves - both their emotions and their behaviour - and can present with huge challenges in terms of supporting them effectively.

We have recently begun to offer consultations to parents/carers and professionals around sensory regulation. We also offer a consultation called "Where do we go from here?!?" to help explore the next step in meeting your child's needs and the support that may be available from a range of services. For further information please see the relevant pages - parent/carer consultations or consultations for practitioners to discuss one or more cases.

In the meantime, please stay safe and remember that

    self-care isn’t selfish!

It enables us to be more effective when caring for others.

We are a small charity based in Swansea, in South Wales supporting children and families affected by ACEs and developmental trauma. We work with schools, services and families (whether adopters, Special Guardians, foster carers or birth families).
