  • A $2 donation can provide small sensory items for use in counselling to help a child open up, learn to trust others and experience the joys of childhood.
  • A $5 donation can provide a stress ball for use in counselling sessions to create a sense of calm for a child, helping relax their body and soothe their anxious nerves.

  • A $30 donation supplies art therapy resources such as paint and brushes to help children express traumatic feelings and heal.
  • A $50 donation facilitates one mother to attend a group parenting session.
  • A $60 donation can help purchase a specially-made therapeutic weighted doll for use in counselling, these help a child make sense of their trauma and feel grounded and safe.
  • An $80 donation allows a child to attend a therapeutic group counselling session using creative art therapy.
  • A $200 donation can provide one home visit from a Trauma Specialist to support carers to use a Therapeutic Parenting Approach to help a child in foster care heal.
