Glasgow Ambassador, Martha Abbasi meets James Dornan MSP

So proud of our wonderful Glasgow Ambassador, Martha Jean for having had such a great meeting with Cathcart MSP, James Dornan earlier today.

Martha took the opportunity to introduce James to the 70/30 Campaign and the work we are doing to prevent child maltreatment and other Adverse Childhood Experiences across the UK. The pair also discussed the potential launch of a cross-party group for 70/30 in Scotland in 2018.

James was very supportive and enthusiastic about our work. Martha looks forward to working with James going forward to make Scotland the best place it can be for its children and their families.

The Glasgow group are growing and on a mission! Watch this space ….

Thanks for all your support James. Great work Martha! 😃

Child Abuse Survivor, Cassie Pullman Shares her Story with the BBC

The lovely Cassie Pullman has teamed up with the BBC to share her story of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (#PTSD) in an effort to raise awareness this #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek

We were lucky enough to have Cassie come onto one our monthly national 70/30 ambassador calls as a guest speaker earlier this year when she shared her story with the 70/30 Campaign network. Cassie uses her own experiences of child abuse to empower and inspire others and to get justice for herself and many others.

Cassie’s honesty and willingness to be so open and candid about her own experiences of child abuse is truly inspiring.

WAVE Trust’s CEO George Hosking Presents on How the Early Years Can Shape Human Relationships at SCCR Conference in Glasgow

WAVE Trust’s CEO George Hosking Presents on How the Early Years Can Shape Human Relationships at SCCR Conference in Glasgow

Founder and CEO of the WAVE Trust charity, George Hosking recently presented at the Scottish Conflict Resolution Centre‘s conference in Glasgow, Scotland. The national, annual conference which took place in February this year had as its main topic of discussion, ‘transforming conflict – nurturing human relationships’. 

An economist, psychologist and clinical criminologist George Hosking founded WAVE Trust in 1996 to bring a business strategy approach to the challenge of reducing violence and child abuse. He has since been an advisor to the UK, Scottish and Welsh Governments.

George’s presentation on the day largely focused on the importance of early years, and in particular the receiving of empathy and nurture during one’s childhood, in influencing the quality of human relationships a child goes on to have in later life.
