Unfortunately, over the next few weeks and months, our children may encounter a bereavement of a close friend or family member.
Please see the links below to websites, which can help you and your child deal with their loss.
Grief is a very personal experience, and every child and young person will experience it differently, give them space to deal with their feelings in their own way.
It is important to remember to take care of ourselves when supporting bereaved children and young people and seek support from our own networks as necessary.
