Help find little children like Thomas a safe home

 

So many children are missing out on the love and attention they desperately need during those vital first years of childhood. Neglect and abuse crushes their spirit and hopes, their self-worth, and their capacity for growth.

With your help, Berry Street can make a difference for children like Thomas. Our motto is ‘We Never Give Up’, and we are determined to help every child who comes to us needing care.


 

Thomas needs your help

Help kids like Thomas
Give children like Thomas the childhood they deserve

When Thomas was removed from his home, he was deeply traumatised. His little body was covered in bruises, and he was too terrified to look people in the eye.

Thomas was not safe at home. He lived every day with shocking physical and emotional abuse. And he was left alone for hours at a time, with no cuddles to comfort him, or toys to stimulate him. Thomas missed out on so many of the things he needed to learn, form trusting relationships, and grow into a happy, healthy boy.

"The neglect and abuse Thomas suffered had a massive impact on his physical and emotional development."

– Julie, Thomas’ Berry Street Caseworker
