The ACE's Framework

At Expert Link we are clear that an increased understanding of the role adverse childhood experiences can have on individuals is crucial if society wants to respond effectively to issues such as the increasing number of people currently rough sleeping and the high numbers of people dying on the streets.


However, a current focus on an Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) test or framework, has made us concerned about the potential affect this may have on our community.

 

Join our next Conversation on Co-production

Connecting as equals - Tuesday 5 May 2020

It is now more important than ever that people with lived experience of multiple disadvantages have their voices heard.


At Expert Link, we believe that when connected as equals, we can co-produce and achieve so much more. However, when we come together to do co-production, it can often feel like we are coming from un-connected worlds.

In this conversation we’ll look at how we can recognise the connections we do have and build a strong, equitable, community.

 

Have you been accommodated during COVID-19?

At Expert Link we believe that anyone accommodated during the COVID-19 emergency should have an opportunity to have their voices heard about future decisions. 


We are carrying out a questionnaire to find out what accommodation people would want. We will use this information to try to influence local and national policy to make the right options available.


If you have been recently accommodated, please click on the button below and take 1 minute to complete the survey.


If you know people who have been recently accommodated, please share this link or a downloaded hardcopy.


The more responses we get, the better evidence we have to make a difference.Thank you for your support.

Committed to co-production

"We all have something of value to contribute."

At this unprecedented time, all of our day to day lives are changing. Regretfully, with lots of our work being undertaken face-to-face, Expert Link will no longer be able to deliver the training we had planned over the next few months.


However, we believe now is an opportunity for us all to learn and grow. To support our community, we will be hosting online Conversations on Co-production, to build an understanding of what Co-production should mean now and in the future. We are also providing platforms for people to remain connected at this time, discussing the issues that are important to them. And we will continue to gather evidence of the issues that matter to us all right now, and empower people to influence the change we want to see.


Please stay connected, and please stay safe.
