Support Act for Kids & children during COVID-19
1 min read
It’s a difficult time for many of us during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly for those who may need extra support or services during this uncertain time. Now more than ever, not-for-profit organisations like Act for Kids needs your help. Together, we can give a voice to children in isolation.
What Do Act for Kids Do?
Act for Kids offers holistic support to children who are suffering physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect. Their support ranges from therapy to deal with trauma, enhancing children’s well-being, family intervention, education and more.
During these tough times of COVID-19, the services Act for Kids provides are needed more than ever before. As families are being forced to remain home with quarantine in place, there is increased stress and anxiety. It is now more than ever that support is crucial to reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect. Act for Kids is continuing to provide much-needed help through telehealth services. This is where therapists work with families remotely through several communication channels, including phone calls and face to face online sessions. They provide children with access to safe adults and enable them to have a voice. Act for Kids needs your support to continue helping Australian kids during isolation.
Devastatingly, 95% of children who suffer from abuse are harmed by someone in a position of love and trust – often a family member. These children need your support. The delivery of these vital services relies heavily on Act for Kids lottery ticket sales. By purchasing a ticket in their draw, your money goes towards professional services with:
