Unfortunately, over the next few weeks and months some of our families may encounter a bereavement of a friend or family member.
Please see the links below to websites which can help you and your child deal with their loss.
Grief is a very personal experience and every person will experience it differently and will need different amounts of both support and space to manage their feelings in their own way.
It is important to remember to take care of ourselves when supporting bereaved children and remember to seek support from our own networks as necessary.
Winston’s Wish – Winston’s Wish offers a wide range of practical support and guidance to bereaved children, their families and professionals who support them. The charity also provides a Freephone National Helpline (08088 020 021), for teachers or parents to call for information and advice about how to support bereaved children and young people.
