Charity description

Body & Soul logo
 Body & Soul's mission is to transform the life-threatening effects of childhood adversity by increasing resilience in people of all ages in a safe and creative space where people can connect, heal and grow.

Whether someone has been neglected or abused, trafficked, attempted suicide or stigmatised because of HIV – we have helped to liberate thousands of people from the trauma that controls them.

Research shows that people who have experienced six or more Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s), such as abuse, neglect and household dysfunction have a life expectancy 20 years below the national average (Couper, 2016). ACEs’ disrupt normal physical, neurodevelopmental, cognitive, behavioural and social processes, and can lead to poor long-term outcomes.  Body & Soul directly addresses these areas in order to improve the long-term wellbeing, connectivity and productivity of people of all ages who have been disproportionately impacted by adverse childhood trauma.

Body and Soul is built on love, kindness and a desire to understand one another. From the beginning, we created a ‘healing community’, inviting our members into an environment where everyone is keen to find out what happened to you before you met us, and what is going on in your life right now. This tenacious attention to the nuance of individual circumstances is the foundation of a genuinely systemic, whole-person approach to health and wellbeing.

We aim to empower each of our 5,000 members with the skills, knowledge and support networks to realise bright and positive futures.
