VOLUNTEERS are being sought to help put together Constable Care comfort packs for children who are victims of crime, neglect or involved in a traumatic situation.

Since the project was established in October 2014, Constable Care in Maylands has managed the packing and distribution of more than 600 comfort packs to WA children going through difficult times.

Corporate and community development manager Diane Ainsworth said the comfort packs were age- and gender-specific and contained essential items such as clothes and toiletries.

“We have been buying all the items required and really need the help of volunteers who can help us pack them once every few months,” she said.
