Chloe

Show a sign of love for a child in need.

Together we can give the gift of comfort.

International experience shows during periods of lockdown and with social isolation, family violence increases. This means Berry Street will need to provide safe homes to an increasing number of children who have experienced severe trauma and abuse.

Children often come into our care with nothing more than the clothes they are wearing. They can feel scared and very alone.

Your support is needed more than ever to help these children feel safe, loved and cared for – often for the first time in their lives.

Together we can give the gift of comfort.

The gift of giving

Show a sign of love for children like Chloe

After coming into foster care at age three, Chloe* was diagnosed as profoundly deaf. She had been living in a world of silence.

Chloe’s foster carers knew she was different. They needed a special way to let her know that she was safe and cared for – so they learned sign language. This was their sign of love and it shows how far our carers will go for the children they welcome into their homes.

Every child is different; just like Chloe, they all have their individual needs when coming into care. With your help we can give them exactly what they need to feel comforted, safe and cared for. Show a sign of love for children in need by purchasing a gift online.
