When Zoe first came into our care, she arrived with nothing, feeling scared and alone. Like many children in care, she needed specialised support to heal from trauma caused by violence and neglect.
Zoe’s carers are specially trained to meet complex needs. They encouraged Zoe to decorate her room, to make sure it feels like her own unique, safe place. They also helped to design her own chillout space, filled with fluffy cushions and comfy blankets – for when she feels anxious or upset.
For the first time in her life, Zoe feels safe, loved and cared for. Buy a gift to help other children recovering from trauma feel safe this winter.
