Support for bereaved children and young people
Bereavement is the period of sadness and loneliness that we experience from a death or loss of a loved one.

There is no single way to grieve. Everyone is different and will grieve in their own way. There is no telling how long it will take.

We have listed some national services offering help and advice on coping with bereavement and grief. Each link listed will take you directly to the organisations website.

Support for those with additional needs

Bereaved people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

It can be difficult to discuss death and bereavement, and to help a child or adult with autism to cope with a death. Every autistic person, and their level of understanding, is different. You will need to adapt any approach or guidance for the person concerned. Child Bereavement UK offers a guidance video on how to provide support.

National Autistic Society also provides information and recommended books and resources to use.
