Every year numerous vulnerable children are placed either in emergency care or foster care in Canberra
On a lot of occasions there is no time to take personal possessions or those loved items with them.
Kids in Care supply Child and Youth Protection Services with Go Bags which include numerous items to make this transition that little bit easier for the child.
Bags include new items only (age appropriate) such as toiletries, a book, pyjamas, a cuddly toy, underwear and a change of clothes.
‘Children’s response to the Go Bags are amazing. They have opened the bag and been thrilled to explore what’s inside and enjoy the novelty of having something that is special to them.
It’s so lovely to see how much joy the bags have brought to some kids because now they have their own bag and personal items. And when the kids and young people get the gift vouchers they are so excited.’
