Help & Support for professionals
Grief is a normal and natural process, however we recognise that some children, young people and their families struggle to move on in their bereavement. We provide support to children and young people who fall within Tier 2 of the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Structure and need additional support. We do not usually accept referrals to the programme until 6 months post-bereavement.
Our staff are trained to work with children with a range of learning and behavioural needs e.g. ADHD and ASD, and our venues are all accessible for children with physical disabilities. There is no charge to a family for attending our bereavement support weekend and we can provide transport where necessary.
