How Are YOU?  Kei te pehea koe?

walletcard.pngThis wallet card was developed in 2009 by a group within the WAVES network including one of our local Child Advocates. 

Designed for children aged from 7 years old through to teenagers, the card provides free-phone numbers and website addresses for What's Up and Kidsline support lines for children and young people.

Originally used by Everyday Theatre as a resource to provide ongoing support to intermediate-aged children, these 'Jack' cards as they have become known have proved enormously successful. 

Kids love that the card looks and feels like a bankcard, is easy to carry around, discrete and durable.

WAVES in conjunction with the Waitakere Taskforce on Family Violence has provided cards and training on their distibution to Waitakere police: encouraging police to sight children present at family violence callouts, ask if they are okay, and pass the cards to children as a way of resourcing children into the future.
