Let’s do more for grieving children and young people

Here’s the truth… No child or young person should ever have to grieve alone. Every child or young person should be able to find and access the help they need after someone has died.

The sad fact is, not every child or young person who needs help, gets help. And that has to change!

What do our Youth Team do?

Junior Youth Ambassadors

From giving feedback on our support services and resources, to sharing experiences with other young people, our Junior Youth Ambassadors (aged 12 and under) help make our services better for even more children and young people.
