Please donate for Constable Care Comfort Packs

25 November 2016

Children are the most vulnerable group in our community. They are more at risk of the emotional, physical and psychological effects associated with trauma than anyone else. Over 1,100 children in WA have to leave home every year as a result of abuse, neglect or other crisis situations, and often they do not have time to take even the basic essentials with them.

A Comfort Pack is a child’s backpack filled with essential items that provide personal care and comfort while away from home. Constable Care provides these free of charge to frontline care and emergency service workers anywhere in WA who are working with children who are victims of abuse, neglect, or who are involved in traumatic situations such as road accidents or bushfires.
