TOM’S STORY

Therapy is not a quick fix - it's a long, costly process and it takes time to turn little lives around.

A life of pain and neglect

Tom* was just six years old when he was placed into foster care with cigarette burns and bite marks on his body. He had experienced ongoing sexual abuse from adults who visited his mum’s house, and physical abuse and neglect from his mother.

How we helped

When Tom was eight years old, he came to Act for Kids. We worked with him for over two years to address a range of concerns, including his significant development delays.

Since then, Tom has made some big improvements. He now displays a greater range of emotions and talks more, he can ask questions and tell people how he is feeling.

A long road ahead

Tom has come a long way, but sadly he still struggles in many areas. His story really highlights the lasting effects that abuse can have on a child. Therapy is not a quick fix – it’s a long process and it takes time to turn little lives around.

Your monthly donation will be directed to the kids that need it most.

This allows us to plan for the future and provide our kids with something they’ve never had before – security.
