Our Children's Bereavement Service offers a child/young person centred approach, offering pre and post bereavement support with the support tailored to their needs. This usually takes the form of 1:1 support either at home, within their School or in the Hospice.

At the moment we are unable to carry out home visits or face to face meetings. So for those young people who are willing to do Zoom/Near Me virtual meetings or use the Hospify instant messenger style app*, this is the route we are using for the interim period whilst keeping in touch with parents/carers and/or teachers.

*If the child or young person needs the loan of a device (iPad) with data in order to participate remotely in support until such times as we can offer face to face sessions this will be made available.

Seasons for Growth

Please note: We no longer run the Seasons for Growth bereavement programme here at the Hospice and instead are offering tailored pre and post bereavement support to children, young people and families already using Hospice services and across the wider community.
