Grief and Loss

Grief is something that will effect everyone of us at some point, and it will effect every one of us in a different way.

Everyone grieves in their own way, and will move in and out of these different stages. It's okay to feel happiness when you are grieving. Don't feel like you're 'doing it wrong' - we all experience our grief and emotions differently.

Bereavement is a complicated process; it is helpful to talk to our children and young people about the process of grief to ensure that they know how to access support when they might need it. There are resources, videos and links to other helpful websites on this page to support you in how to approach talking to children and young people about grief in a safe way. Please do get in touch for further information and support if you feel that would be beneficial.
