If there ever comes a day where we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.

Supporting Bereaved Children
2-hour online Workshop

Statistics estimate that in the UK;

a parent dies every 22 minutes
(Childhood Bereavement Network (NCB), November 2016)

In today's terms, that equates to around 309,000 school age children across the UK.

That is around 1 in 29 (or roughly one per classroom)
(Childhood Bereavement Network (NCB), November 2016)

Those statistics don't account for other significant bereavements either; Siblings, Grandparents etc.
Let that sink in for a moment. That is a lot of grieving children in the UK.

Bearing that in mind it is very likely if you are working with or caring for children and young people that you will find yourself supporting a grieving child and their family at some point.


This can feel so overwhelming, often due to fear of doing or saying the wrong thing.

In our 2-hour workshop we will explore;

  • the effects bereavement and loss may have on children 0-16 years

  • some theory around grief

  • how the current pandemic has impacted on those grieving

  • ways you can help children to cope day to day

  • how we can help children to remember

  • resources/support available in the UK and locally
