Paws of Comfort - Derby Grief Support

Bereavement Support Group for Children - through the healing power of animal therapy.

  • 1 hour
  • Bridge the Gap

Service Description

Welcome to our Bereavement Support Group for Children, a compassionate haven where young hearts find solace through the healing power of animal therapy. Sponsored by the generous support of Derby Charity Sam's Superheroes, and hosted by Bridge the Gap Child Mental Health C.I.C., our Monday evening sessions from 6:00 pm to 6:45 pm provide a nurturing environment for children navigating the challenging journey of grief. In this unique and caring space, children are invited to connect with furry friends who offer unconditional love and understanding. Our animal therapy sessions aim to provide comfort, companionship, and a therapeutic outlet for expression during times of loss. Facilitated by Sam’s Superheroes and Bridge the Gap, the group encourages open dialogue, creative expression, and the formation of bonds with peers who share similar experiences. At the heart of our mission is the commitment to creating a safe space where children can explore their emotions, share their stories, and feel supported in the face of loss. Through the generous support of Sam's Superheroes, we are fostering a sense of community and understanding. Join us on this healing journey Monday evenings as we come together to support one another, embrace the power of animal therapy, and navigate the path forwards. Your child's journey through grief is unique, and here at Bridge the Gap Child Mental Health C.I.C., we provide the compassionate support and hope needed to navigate it with strength.
