Saturday Peer Support Groups.

The aim of these groups are to create an environment where children age 7 to 11 years, who are bereaved or affected by terminal-illness of someone important to them, feel safe enough to share their feelings with others whilst taking part in fun activities and workshops. Due to COVID-19 and the current lockdown restrictions these groups are currently suspended but we hope to return to them as soon as it’s legal and safe to do so. Everyone is welcome and if you would like more information, please do get in touch (details below).

Dates of 2021 are to be confirmed.

Time: 10am till 12
