Transforming the lives of children impacted by emotional trauma through innovative expressive therapy programs.

A psychologically traumatising experience can have a considerably adverse impact on a child’s developing brain and if unresolved, can develop into serious personal challenges in their adult life. KidsXpress supports families, schools and communities to better manage and minimise the impact of childhood trauma through early intervention.


2017 Pitch
Funds raised: $39,013

After pitching at TFN Sydney in June 2017, KidsXpress raised $39,013 to go towards for their 10-week therapy programs that use music, art, drama, dance and play as therapy to immerse children’s senses, imaginations and entire bodies into the communication of difficult emotions or experiences.


Impact stories from the field

Recently TFN was able to visit KidsXpress at their new office in Macquarie Park. This marks a time of growth for the organisation, thanks to the amazing work they have been doing in expressive therapy for children impacted by trauma. Below are a few photos from the space and stay tuned for their impact report coming out soon!
