Help a child feel safe this winter

Give a gift of comfort to a child in need

Berry Street provides safe homes for children who’ve experienced severe abuse and neglect. In Victoria alone, almost 11,000 children can’t live safely at home.

Sadly, as family violence increases so does the demand for our services. Last year family violence incidents reached record highs - and children are often the silent victims.

It’s hard to imagine that not every child has a teddy bear to hug tight or a winter coat to keep warm, especially when they feel scared and alone. But you can help a child feel safe this winter.

The gift of giving

Help a child like Zoe* feel safe this winter

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.
