Who is the champion in your life?
Is there someone in your life who makes you feel proud or inspired? Who would you nominate as your personal champion – maybe your sporting hero, a colleague, a public figure, a historical figure, a teacher, a friend, or maybe someone who has inspired you in the past..?
We invite you to raise awareness of the charity by tweeting about the champion in your life. Tweet @cbukhelp #CBUKchampions
Grief: Support for Young People
The app has been created by a group of bereaved young people working with leading bereavement charity Child Bereavement UK.
It has been developed for 11-25 year olds who have been bereaved of someone important to them. It can also be used by friends, teachers, parents and professionals who would like to know how to support bereaved young people.
Elephant's Tea Party
Developed by Child Bereavement UK, Elephant's Tea Party is an annual event to help teachers give children the emotional literacy and life skills needed to equip them for bereavement, now and in later life.
Elephant's Tea Party gives staff the resources to help pupils explore the subject in an age-appropriate, straightforward and accessible way, ending with a tea party fundraising event for all to enjoy!
eLearning: Supporting Bereaved Pupils
Supporting Bereaved Pupils is an award-winning elearning programme for teachers, head teachers and support staff which has been developed with input from teachers and bereaved families. Its aim is to increase confidence and offer practical advice and skills for those supporting bereaved pupils.
