For many years now, we have received support for the costs of providing Crisis Cases from Trinity Families, the charitable trust of the Catholic Diocese of Sale.
In the past 12 months they have funded Crisis Cases to re-stock the Bairnsdale, Sale, Morwell and Warragul Crisis Case Depots. That’s 152 cases!
As costs of many items have increased since the beginning of the pandemic, and we’ve had a few unexpected costs this year with the flooding of our rooms at the hall, having this support for our Crisis Cases makes all the difference!
Our ongoing survey of carers who receive Crisis Cases continues to indicate that they:
– Make it easier to afford other necessities, activities or items for the child or other children in their care (67%)
– Allow the carer to spend more time than you would have been able to otherwise on settling the child into their home (89%)
– Make the carer feel supported knowing there is material assistance available. (89%)
Thank you Trinity Families for funding our Crisis Cases over the years, and helping us to support carers and ensure dignity for children in out of home care.
