It’s our goal to create a state-of-the-art Trauma Recovery Centre for children impacted by the trauma of abuse neglect and family violence. We will create a safe place where children can rediscover their childhoods and leave behind the deep and damaging pain of abuse.
Why are we creating a new centre in Sydney?
Abuse and violation undermines the very core of children. It disconnects children from their feelings. It betrays their confidence in people. It stops them from being able to trust. The trauma of abuse isolates children. It is hard for them to depend on adults. The world feels unpredictable. It is not safe. They are forced to shut down in order to protect themselves and survive.
Children need safe places and the support of specialists who understand their experiences and can help them heal.
