Help us reach one more child

“A lot of children will come feeling that they’re helpless victims, whereas from my perspective they’re ingenious survivors.”

Chris / Letting the Future In practitioner

“So many families are on their own who don’t have extended families, who don’t have parents that they can rely on, very often families are quite isolated, and I think it’s really, really important that there’s somewhere they can go, feel safe, because I think if the parents are feeling good in themselves, it can really have a huge impact on the role that they play parenting their children.”

Nikki / Baby Steps practitioner

“I go into the schools and talk to the children about different ways that they can be hurt, and talk to them about speaking out to a trusted adult if anything’s making them sad, worried, anxious or frightened.”

Michelle / Speak out Stay safe volunteer
