Trauma Informed Plymouth Network
Our ambition is for Plymouth to be a trauma-informed city. Our independent network is open to anyone connected with Plymouth with a desire to learn about and promote trauma informed ways of being.
How do we define trauma?
Trauma affects people in different ways. Everyone's experience is unique and different.
Put simply, trauma is about the harmful things we experience and the legacy they leave behind.
Our approach recognises that adversity is not predictive. With the right support, protective factors and healthy, trusted relationships in place, people can and do overcome the most traumatic experiences. People survive and can thrive despite - or even because - of their trauma.
To talk of trauma without reference to resilience is to tell only half the story.
Why you should join us
The Trauma Informed Plymouth Network occupies a unique space for connection, reflection and shared learning, with members being encouraged to 'be the change' we want to see within our city culture.
We are courageously prevention focused and seek to avoid causing further harm. We advocate healthy and trusted relationships at home, at work and in the community as the key to helping people overcome adversity, feel safer and develop their resilience.
We offer a safe environment where those with lived experience of trauma, or those from outside of the 'system' can stand alongside interested professionals, and all have a voice, to shape innovation and influence change.
Whether your interest is professional or personal, your enthusiasm, engagement and ideas are very welcome!
