The Trauma Informed Plymouth Network (TIPN) was established in early 2018 as an innovative response to the emerging evidence regarding childhood adversity and the impact of trauma on people, communities and those delivering services. We are a collaborative, community network with lived experience of trauma and adversity at its heart.
We have a diverse membership of people who have experienced trauma and interested professionals from across the public, private, voluntary and community sectors who are all intensely curious to learn about and promote trauma-informed and shame-sensitive practices.
We are an independent, grassroots and ‘ground up’ movement for cultural change, that aligns with long term prevention approaches to addressing the root causes of harm in society.
We are part of the European alliance of trauma informed cities & communities, coordinated by the Wave Trust for the World Health Organisation and have contributed to the all-party Parliamentary Group that addresses Adverse Childhood Experiences.
