Abstract The role of communities in improving health and wellbeing is receiving increasing and long overdue attention in health policy and local population health systems.As part of the change there is a need to consider sustainability, collaborative partnerships and integrated care systems and the role that communities can play in improving health through reducing health inequalities by tackling the wider determinants of health. In particular there is a growing movement across the United Kingdom around the impact of chronic stress in early childhood and the resulting adverse health outcomesIn Reading, the Health and Wellbeing Board signed up to work in partnership to support our communities to achieve a system-wide approach to raising awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the inter-linkages of these with substance misuse, suicide prevention and other adverse health and societal outcomes – to enable a robust approach to prevention and dealing with trauma within communities. Latterly, given the enthusiasm for trauma informed approaches by neighbouring Health and Wellbeing Boards, it was agreed that a joint system-wide approach should be adopted. The partners involved in this work are: Thames Valley Police, Reading Borough Council, West Berkshire Council, Wokingham Council, Berkshire West Clinical Commissioning Group, the Wave Trust, the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation and Brighter Futures for Children.This presentation will inform delegates about the start of the journey that we are on in Berkshire West and share some of the early findings as we aim to become a self-healing community.
