Sunshine Packs are designed to enhance the mental and emotional health and wellbeing of the recipient and assist in their journey of healing from trauma. The items included have each been carefully selected to meet a specific and important need. To create a sense of self-worth, preserve dignity, show they are valued and cared about, give comfort, and help alleviate the isolation and negative impact that dispacement has on the children and young people entering care.

The packs will provide essential care items to support the recipients as they work through the program to help them develop life skills, gain education and work experience, and participate in counselling to prepare for living independently and avoiding homelessness.
Each pack includes toiletries and a towel, underwear, socks, an outfit, and some pens and an exercise book to assist in employment and education training.
