Constable Care Child Safety Foundation works hard to keep children out of dangerous situations, but sadly the reality is that sometimes kids get caught up. More than 1,100 children in WA have to leave home every year as a result of abuse, neglect or other crisis situations, and often they do not have time to take even the basic essentials with them. That’s why we provide up to 1000 Comfort Packs every year containing items such as pyjamas, underwear, towel, toothbrush, soap, hair brush, story book and toys.
But there is a problem.
Each year it becomes harder it keep up with demand and keep this much-needed program active.

Why Comfort Packs?
Front line workers such as police officers and child protection workers are often present at the moment a child’s life changes forever. Children are at more risk of the emotional, physical and psychological effects associated with crisis & trauma than anyone else, and it’s critical that after a child experiences trauma that those front line workers are able to break down barriers and help them feel safe. It’s not just about earning their trust, it’s about comforting them when they need it most, and reminding them that their community cares.
In times of crisis and trauma, children need normality, dignity and comfort more than ever, and a Comfort Pack can really make a difference.
"We utilised the comfort bags with huge success whilst I was attached to the Derby Detectives and believe they would be of great value to our unit dealing with vulnerable children and victims of crime."
