Child Bereavement UK provides free support and information to bereaved children and young people up to the age of 25 and parents bereaved of a baby or child within the locality and surrounding areas.
At our centre in Newham we offer:
Face to face support sessions: For individuals, couples, children, young people and families.
Family Support Groups: These groups allow bereaved families to get together; children aged 4 to 12 can meet other bereaved children with their adult carers and express their feelings through play and creative activities in facilitated groups.
Youth Peoples Advisory Groups (YPAG): YPAG encourages bereaved young people aged 11 to 25 to meet in a supportive environment and work together on projects about what they think helps young people who are grieving, based on their own experiences.
Parents support groups: These sessions give bereaved parents the chance to meet each other in a safe and supportive environment, facilitated by a bereavement support practitioner.
