Wirral Safeguarding Children Partnership is responsible for ensuring children and young people are kept safe and can progress into adulthood as happy and healthy individuals. 
We know that some experiences as a child can have a negative affect on young people. The purpose of this research is to help the WSCP understand how adverse experiences have affected young adults in Wirral. 


This survey is completely confidential. 


What are ACEs?


Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are stressful or traumatic events that happen in childhood and can affect people as adults. They include events that affect a child or young person directly, such as abuse or neglect. ACEs also include things that affect children indirectly through the environment they live in. This could be living with a parent or caregiver who has poor mental health, where there is domestic abuse, or where parents have divorced or separated. ACEs can be single events, long-term or repeated experiences.
