Children's Grief Awareness Week 2020 (19-25 November)  brings organisations and individuals together to show support for bereaved children, young people,  their families and community; raising awareness of their needs and how to help. This year, Covid-19 has brought additional challenges to bereaved children and young people. The theme for Children’s Grief Awareness Week 2020, therefore, is tackling isolation, and we're working in collaboration with other organisations to encourage families and schools to help young people #SaytheWords and reach out for support. The week will start with Children’s Grief Awareness Day on 19 November, a global day designed to help us all become more aware of the needs of grieving children — and of the benefits they obtain through the support of others.
