Barnardo’s Cymru has been working in Wales for more than a century and currently runs around 80 services. Our aim is to reach out to the most disadvantaged children, young people, families and communities to help ensure that every child has the best possible start in life. We support some of the most vulnerable children with our services, campaigns and research.
We try to ensure that every young person can realise their full potential, whatever the circumstances of their life. We believe in children – no matter who they are or what they have been through.

Routine Enquiry About Childhood Adversity (REACh)
REACh was implemented across a large multi-site general practice in the North West of England from April to October 2017. Using qualitative and quantitative data, this report considers the feasibility and acceptability of ACE enquiry in general practice from both the patient and the practitioner perspective, and provides some initial insight into the potential impact of ACE enquiry on service delivery and patient health outcomes.
This report is intended as a proof of concept study for ACE enquiry in general practice and explores key findings from the evaluation of a pathfinder study for one such approach - Routine Enquiry About Childhood Adversity (REACh). View the infographic.
