Parents, carers, schools and other professionals can play a crucial role in supporting children and young people during times of need. However, supporting children and young people who are grieving can be challenging and adults are understandably often anxious how to respond before or after death and may worry about making it worse. If this inhibits them, it can mean that children miss out on support and are left alone with their fears and feelings.
Our training and support increases professionals and parents/carers understanding of bereavement in childhood and their knowledge of practical ideas for offering support to complement their exiting skills in supporting children. During the coming year we will be providing a range of training and workshops for both professionals and parents/carers so please watch this space or let us have your contact details so we can keep in touch by email.
