Thomas needs your help
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
