My Recommended Resources to Help Bereaved Children and Young PeopleApr 15, 2022
In today’s video I share my recommended resources to help children and young people who have experienced bereavement.
This is the 5th part of our mini-series on bereavement, and I’m focusing on books that explore the subject of death using child friendly language, and also on online support from various organisations specialising in childhood bereavement.
The books can be read to younger children, or read alone by teenagers. I also share a couple of fillable workbooks that help children express their thoughts and feelings. All the books mentioned are listed here for you.
The websites of the various organisations I mention in the video are listed below in case you would like to visit them:
Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.
Winston's Wish is the UK's childhood bereavement charity. They support children and their families after the death of a parent or sibling.
Advice and guidance for bereaved children, young people, their families, carers and communities.
The Children's Bereavement Centre provides support to children and young people experiencing trauma due to the death or terminal illness of someone close to them.
Support Groups for grieving children who can often feel alone because they may not know anyone their own age who has experienced the death of a loved one.
I hope you find these resources helpful.
