Creating a safer world for children

The Alannah & Madeline Foundation, whose purpose is to create a safer world for children, has seen continued demand for its services working with educators to help them recognise and respond to traumatised children. 

The Foundation launched its Trauma Consultancy Service (TraCS) in 2019. Primarily funded through the Victorian Department of Education School Readiness Funding, this trauma-informed, relationship-based program sees the Foundation’s specialist family practitioners and trauma consultants work directly with educators in their kindergartens, childcare centres and classrooms.

They also provide opportunities for reflection to help educators continue to plan and support children who need it.
