Bereavement

Bereavement According to a Co-op Funeral Service survey, sadly 'most Britons will suffer their first loss of a loved one by the time they are 21-years-old'. Death is such a difficult thing for anyone to talk about and it is particularly hard to know exactly how best we can support our youngsters. I have attached some resources here that may be of help:
