Entering Care Kits
One of the key services that CREATE provides in an effort to reduce the isolation that kids feel when they are removed from home is sending an Entering Care Kit to children and young people entering care for the first time. The kits are intended to let the child know that they are not alone, to provide some comfort at a very distressing time, and to inform them that CREATE is the peak body representing the voices of all children and young people in out-of-home care. The kits encourage children and young people to stay positive and empower them to access support if they need it.
Entering Care Kits are sent out to new clubCREATE members who are entering care for the first time. Hopefully being part of clubCREATE will help you feel connected to other kids in care who are going through similar things.
Email us at clubCREATE@create.org.au or give us a ring on 1800 655 105 to sign up.
