Grief Encounter - Helping Bereaved Children
Grief is not an easy subject to talk about or deal with internally. There really are no rules on how you are supposed to behave or get through this difficult time, however there are a number of ways that this tragic time can be made easier for everyone involved
Each family’s needs are individual, and change over time. Our level of support is varied, with services ranging from a supportive voice at the end of a phone, group activities with likeminded families at Fundays, Grief Groups and Remembrance Days, to long term one-to-one counselling.
The Grief Encounter Helpline - Our helpline currently supports over 3,000 people annually, and is staffed by trained professionals to support bereaved children or families with advice and guidance. Call us during office hours Monday to Friday to book an appointment.
We also offer a dedicated e-mail support service, answered by a qualified advisor, if those who are in need of support are unable to make a call. Advice, support and information are only a click away.
