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

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 redeveloped our training and interventions to enable us to deliver these online as well as face-to-face when this is safe. Please see our training or projects pages.

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).
