Building a Resilient Community
Three Rivers District Council and Watford Families First Partnership are hosting a day of workshops to help increase our community's understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) and how we can support people to be resilient to the challenges of negative experience.
The aim of the workshop is to show how to support and engage both communities and professionals to further understand human behaviour and enhance quality of life for all.

The market place will run alongside the workshops on the day. They will offer preventative and reactive support for trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s). This is there for all to engage with troubles you may be facing, for advice, or for general questions about their roles to offer.
The market place is a great way for you to promote your organisation whilst engaging the attendees in your practices, support and advice that you have to offer. We are keen to demonstrate a holistic approach to managing and preventing trauma, so complimentary therapies are encouraged to sign up too.
The stalls will be held alongside workshops and as people leave them, allowing you to meet everyone who has attended. Times below are inclusive of 30minutes prior to your slot to allow time to set up. Stalls are not limited to one slot.
