The Shining Stars’ Comfort Box is one of the many other new things that we have introduced to our children in care.
Our ‘Comfort box’ is a welcome box and is our commitment to show our children and young people that we do care about their health and wellbeing and give them a sense of feeling loved, as some young people may have never felt this in their lives before.
This comfort box will be given to the children/young people when they first come in our care. It contains various things such as a throw, pair of towels, toiletries, night lamp, diary etc. At SSFA we would like to make sure the children get off to the best start by building trust with them from the very first instant.
Our ‘Comfort Box’ will help the children feel safer and more secure when entering care and we hope it will help them to build relationships and connections with their foster carers and the supervising social worker. It’s very important to us that they feel loved and cared for under any circumstances and that’s what we think our ‘Comfort Box’ will do for them.
