Fosterline Wales factsheets

Building resilience 

Without intervention, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can affect a person for life. Adults who experienced four or more ACEs as children are at higher risk of poor mental and physical health, and worse outcomes in general. Many fostered children in Wales have experienced four or more ACEs. The children who recover best from adversity are those with high levels of resilience.

This factsheet explains more about resilience, and where you can learn practical ways to boost a child’s resilience.
