KidsXpress is a centre for kids aged 5-14 where you get to use music, art, drama and play to learn about yourself, your relationships, feelings, and how to deal with the things happening in your life. It’s once a week over a school term and it’s lots of fun.
Sound like a place you might like to come to? Talk to an adult you trust to help you find out more.
If you need to talk to someone now about your worries or you just want to chat, call Kids Helpline on 1800 551800. It’s free to call from all landlines or a Vodafone or Optus mobile at any time.
Your child must be referred by a suitable professional – usually from health, education or social services. For instance a psychologist, school counsellor or social worker. The referring professional needs to be currently working with the child and not related to them.
Following the initial referral, KidsXpress will contact you and the referrer by mail to confirm your child’s placement on the wait list. When a place comes up, you’ll be contacted again to arrange an assessment for your child.
We rely on corporate and individual philanthropy to run our program. You can make a tremendous, life-long difference to the lives of children impacted by trauma.
Please consider getting involved.
