Child Bereavement UK has won a Gold award in the People's Choice category at the Charity Film Awards 2024 for its short animated film Remembering someone special who has died. The film suggests ways in which children and young people can remember someone important to them who has died. 

A child or young person may miss their special person and feel sad when they think about them. They may even worry that they’ll forget what they were like. Finding ways to remember such as looking at photographs, talking about the person who has died or visiting a place they loved can help.

The Charity Film Awards is the world’s biggest campaign for cause-based films. Child Bereavement UK has been successful in the awards in previous years, winning the Charity Film of the Year category in 2019 for its film, One More Minute. In 2022 the charity won the Bronze People’s Choice Award in its category for the animated short film, The Invisible Suitcase and in 2023 the Silver Award for the animated short film, Puddle Jumping.

Jane Keightley, Director of Marketing, Communications & Content for Child Bereavement UK said: 

We’re delighted that Remembering someone special who has died has been recognised at the Charity Film Awards. The awards are a great vehicle to raise awareness of Child Bereavement UK and help us reach more bereaved families who need support.
