Kidspot.com.au has launched their latest Kidspot Cares #couchandacuppa campaign, as they seek to both raise awareness and find a solution to family violence.
Partnering with BaptistCare, the campaign features the opportunity for people to donate to BaptistCare’s Break Free program, an early intervention program that works with children to rebuild their lives and focus on a future free from the trauma of domestic and family violence.
BaptistCare HopeStreet has been supporting people experiencing domestic and family violence for over 32 years. In this time, their trained front line staff and specialist counsellors have transformed the lives of hundreds of women and children as they seek to build safer families.
Rob Ellis, BaptistCare General Manager Community Services sees how costly the climate of violence, terror and fear is for women and children living in our communities.
“The children we are caring for see or hear the violence experienced by their mother, and many are direct victims of violence themselves. They are growing up in an environment tainted by fear, shattering their trust, eroding their love and disrupting their development, education and mental wellbeing. But as a community we can’t be overwhelmed by this; we need to be compelled into action,” he said.
