THE SCALE OF THE CHALLENGE


Little Stars Kids currently runs the Little Stars Kids Camp Program in South-East Queensland for children living in foster care.

Little Stars Kids offers the Little Stars Kids Camp Program for children aged 4-10 living in long-term foster care. The Program is designed to assist in a non-therapeutic setting, to help children who have experienced abuse and neglect and been separated from their primary caregivers, to rebuild self-esteem, build a sense of trust in others and improve their long-term mental and physical health prospects.

Research tells us positive relationships and experiences can buffer against the effects of abuse and neglect and provide better long-term health outcomes for children. The Little Star Kids Camp Program achieves this by providing an environment where the children can grow through fun, laughter, and build strong and lasting relationships with members of the Camp community.

A second program offered by Little Stars Kids is “Little Stars Kids Cases”. The Cases Program targets a different group of children to that of the camp program. This program targets children who are in short-term care or who have just entered the foster care system, in contrast to the camp program for children in long-term foster care. The cases program is for children who have experienced abuse or neglect and provides children with a case which they can call their very own and store their own personal belongings in.

We are excited to share with you how we can work together to bring optimism and resilience to help our kids grow through fun and laughter.

All kids need is a little help, a little hope, and somebody who believes in them. – Magic Johnson.

THE NEED


The Little Stars Kids purpose is to improve the lives of children who have experienced abuse or neglect in Queensland through bringing healing, happiness, fun, laughter and hope through involvement with our programs.

Little Stars Kids was established in 2016 and its program is truly unique. Currently it is the only existing charity which assists children who have experienced abuse and neglect having been separated from their primary carers, to rebuild self-esteem, build a sense of trust in others and improve their long-term mental and physical health prospects. It is the only organisation to offer support to long-term foster children aged 4-10 years.

There is an enormous amount of work that goes into structuring the Little Stars Kids Camps from delivering this offering to little people, to recruiting volunteers and carers for the children and working with foster agencies and government departments. A strong policy and procedural process in line with both the Department of Community, Child Safety and Disability Services and foster care agencies has been put in place to offer Little Stars Kids Camps for this age group.

Children who experience abuse or neglect forget how to laugh, have fun and they lose hope.  The Little Stars Kids Camp Programs reminds them how to smile again. The power of laughter and optimism cannot be underestimated for children like this – it heals and strengthens on so many levels.

That’s why Little Stars Kids journey was created and we need your help!
