Are you ready to join this adventure and support Wesley Kids?

Wesley Kids is a child and family mental health service that supports children who have experienced trauma and/or grief and helps them to process their experiences and their very big feelings in order to have the best chance to make their childhood a happy and healthy one. In clinical terms, Wesley Kids provides wrap-around support that is strengths-based, trauma informed and inclusive of the whole family. The need for this service is huge, and it’s getting even bigger - our waitlist of families who need support grows bigger everyday. We need your help to make sure every child who needs to be lifted up, can be.
