Body & Soul

Body & Soul is an innovative charity that uses a comprehensive, community-based and trauma informed approach to address the life-threatening effects of childhood adversity in people of all ages.

In 1996 Body & Soul was established to address the gap in HIV services that provided targeted support for children, young people, and families. They have developed a ‘whole person’ model of care rooted in a strengths based approach that nurtures connection, healing and growth.

There is a substantial body of research showing that the stress associated with adverse childhood experiences can have life-long consequences for health and well-being.

Compassionate spaces are created both within ourselves and within Body & Soul. The ‘whole person approach’ brings cohesion back to someone’s life that has been fragmented by trauma.
