Often young children who have experienced trauma are unable to express themselves using language and instead, may best express themselves through art and play. Art therapy is a commonly used method of therapy that enables the child to safely and openly express and process their inner emotions surrounding their trauma, using a variety of creative mediums.

Restoring Hope is collecting donations of the following art and craft items to assist children on their journey of recovery from sexual abuse:

  1. Water colour paints
  2. Crayola Crayons or Pens
  3. Children’s Craft Scissors
  4. Glitter
  5. Games eg snakes and ladders, uno etc
  6. Kinetic Sand (Magic sand)
  7. Easels
  8. Sticker Books
  9. Frames
  10. Art Smocks
  11. Icy pole sticks
  12. Paint Brushes
  13. Dry pastels
  14. Drawing pads
  15. Play Doh
  16. Craft boxes
  17. Craft glue
  18. Stickers
  19. Mirrors
  20. Woodcraft
  21. Felt

These goods will be distributed throughout the 15 CASA (Centre Against Sexual Assault) Centres that are located around Victoria as an ongoing project by Restoring Hope. Together, the Victorian CASAs work to ensure that all women, men and children who are victims/survivors of sexual assault have access to comprehensive and timely support and intervention to address their needs.

By providing these art and craft items with your help, we are able to provide direct benevolent relief to these young victims and survivors of sexual assault that will enable them to express their emotions through various forms of art therapy, and set them on a path towards recovery and the restoration of hope in their lives.
