Children's Grief Awareness Week
Friday 20 November 2015
Every 22 minutes a child or young person in the UK is bereaved of a parent.
The Shakespeare Hospice is showing our support for Children’s Grief Awareness Week 2015 (19-25 November) by raising awareness of bereaved children’s needs through our Children and Young People’s Bereavement Service.
After the death of someone close, children need support in their grief, to be nurtured and to feel a sense of continuity, helping them weave together the threads of their past and their future.
Our work, both one to one and with groups of young people, helps grieving children and families realise that they are not alone.
