Belinda’s story

I was seeing a counsellor and when I changed to seeing a Kids in Focus worker it made things so much better. I feel so supported.

I know I can rely on the KIF worker. They never let me down or cancel. One of the best things is knowing that the KIF worker is there when I need them, even if it’s just a phone call. That really matters to me.

I’ve been shown so much respect too. That helped me work through things myself.

When someone believes in you it makes all the difference.

Three months down the track I can say that life is much better now. I’ve gotten through some trying times and I am really proud of where I am now.
