Wrapped in Angels

Wrapped in Angels is the flagship group work program. It has been run by Mary Jo Mc Veigh since the early 2000s and has been taught at university and at a state-wide basis to other organisations, and evaluated and recommended as a program of best practice in working with children who have been traumatised.

This ten-week program is run as a journey of resilience that explores the woven, textured fabrics of the intricacies of life and explores what has sustained and nourished children when facing trauma. Skilled adult facilitators will assist children in creating a blanket that holds a colourful representation of love, protection, warmth and safety. This blanket made by a child is a tangible reminder of what holds them and keeps them strong, connected and loved. It is uniquely theirs.
