These free webinars have been designed for and by those working within the education sector, providing an introduction to supporting a bereaved student.

There are specific webinars targeted towards nursery; primary; and secondary settings. Children's understanding and responses tend to vary according to their age and level of understanding, and the training reflects this. 

We are pleased to provide these webinars free of charge to schools. As a charity providing bereavement support, we are anticipating increasing demand for our services. We are inviting voluntary donations so that we can continue to provide support to pupils, parents and families, and training and resources for schools. Please consider making a donation to Child Bereavement UK if you can.
