Who should attend?

Suitable for anyone working in the education, health and social care sector and those who specifically work with these groups.

9 March 2022: 14.00 - 17.00

This 3-hour workshop will explore how complex and often traumatic loss, grief and bereavement impacts on children, young people and their families who are seeking asylum in the UK. It is designed to help those who work within this area, including those within the education, health, social care and voluntary sector, gain an insight and understanding about how best to support these families.

Learning Outcomes

You will:

  • Gain an understanding of grief and bereavement and the grieving process
  • Gather some insight into the impact of grief and bereavement for asylum seeking families who may have witnessed and experienced traumatic bereavement, and the complexities that arise from this
  • To increase awareness of our own needs as professionals and explore ways to support ourselves, and our colleagues
  • To gain information about Child Bereavement UK and other support organisations and resources available.



We encourage prospective participants to consider their own experience of loss and how it might affect them during training. Generally speaking, our training is not usually suited to anyone who has suffered a recent, significant personal loss or bereavement.
