Restoring Hope is creating "Crisis Care Packs" for children and young people who have been sexually abused, to be given to them in moments of crisis - for example, being forced to leave a dangerous home environment or attending a hospital crisis centre for initial forensic testing after an incident of abuse. These packs will consist of a few small comfort items, plus basic clothing and toiletries, and will make an immense difference to a child or young person in need. Our aim is to use this simple act to bring some comfort and a sense of normality to a life that has been turned upside down, and restore a sense of dignity and hope at a time when it is needed the most.
