Our Aim

My Bag eases the impact of the traumatic experience of entering foster care. We provide a bag the child can use to move any items they are able to rescue, as well as including a variety of comfort items including: a teddy bear, blanket, reading book, crayons, water bottle, colouring book, toothbrush, tissues, amongst other things. 

These items will remain with the child for as long as they decide to keep them. 

With the average foster care placement lasting between 18 months and 2 years, these items will move with the child, and the bag will also allow them to move any items they have between their placements.
