Our children may encounter a bereavement of a loved one, at some point in their early years.

Grief is a very personal experience and we all deal with it in different ways. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to deal with grief. Give your child space so they can deal with their feelings in their own way.

We have collated a range of bereavement support resources to help you and your child.

Please see below for useful bereavement support resources:
