Australia: Carroll & O'Dea attend STARTTS 2014 Refugee Ball
Last Updated: 27 December 2014

410 guests joined us at Dockside, Darling Harbour, for a spectacular evening of entertainment, and of course, fundraising for the work that STARTTS do with survivors of torture and trauma.

The NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS) provides services to assist people from refugee and refugee like backgrounds who experience or have experienced torture or other traumatic events before arriving in Australia.

The organisation is a not for profit charity providing numerous community based programmes, free counselling services, education, psychiatric assessment and general treatment including physiotherapy, therapeutic massage and acupuncture and pain management and exercise groups for those who suffer physical injuries.

Carroll & O'Dea are proud to support this organisation that assists people heal from trauma. The money raised from the Ball will go towards the various programmes run by STARTTS, in particular their arts and cultural activities which create a unique way of helping people to heal from trauma and build social connections and, of course, encouraging refugee communities to find and express their artistic talents. If you would like to know more about STARTTS, their website is accessible at here.
