Coping with bereavement

Unfortunately, over the next few weeks and months, our children and young people may encounter a bereavement of a close friend or family member.  


Please see the links below to books and 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.

These are a few books that may help you to discuss loss and grief with your child.
Here are some websites that offer support to bereaved families and young people.
