Monthly, drop-in peer support group
This is a relaxed, informal, friendly group for children and young people who have lost someone significant to them to come together with their families and play, do crafts (including special 'remembering' activities) knowing that everyone there has experienced something similar. We also provide books and printed resources for the adults along with free refreshments.

We organise social trips and activities (e.g. Trampolining, football match, theatre) and have recently started a regular coffee meet up for parents of bereaved children too, which.
1:1 Therapeutic Support
We also offer one to one therapeutic support for those children who need it. This support is provided by one of our experienced Bereavement Practitioners. We operate an open referral system, so children can be referred by parents/carers as well as health, social care and education professionals.
