Who We Are: 

This service offers counselling to children and young people, or advice and support to their care givers, who have been affected by life limiting illness. We work with children and young people aged from 4-18 pre and post bereavement.
Young people and parents/ guardians can self-refer to the Child & Young Person’s Bereavement Services.

What We Offer: 

We offer different levels of support depending on the individual child or young person’s needs. An individualised plan of care will be agreed following an initial assessment of need, ranging from

  • Advice and signposting (face to face or telephone)
  • Support to the child or young person’s parent/ guardian/ care giver (telephone or face to face)
  • Group support sessions
  • 1:1 counselling sessions.

Our Child and Young Person’s Counsellors will refer onto education, health & social care agencies when a child or young person’s needs are unable to be met by specialist palliative services or are not as a result of the impact of life limiting illness.
