Children’s Grief Awareness Week UK #MakeTime2Listen 17-23 November 2016

The Childhood Bereavement Network is teaming up with Grief Encounter and members across the UK to raise awareness of the needs of grieving children in our communities. Running from 17-23 November with a theme of #MakeTime2Listen, the Week is a great opportunity to us to join together in support of bereaved children and their families.

On 17th November they will be releasing research about how bereaved children deal with their worries, and on 18th November they will  be sharing films made by young people about why it’s important to #MakeTime2Listen. Look out for some amazing celebrity support organised by Grief Encounter, and blogs from widowed parents and families.

Research is how we prove what works

Even before I became Chief Social Worker for Adults in England, I had long recognised the importance and value of research in social work practice. Then, as now, I believed we must demonstrate professionalism, insight and continuous improvement as we worked to help people achieve better lives for themselves.

Candle Child Bereavement Service: Children, young people and loss – part three

In the final part of this story, Judy Debenham describes how the support that Rachel is receiving from the Candle team is beginning to take effect. The Candle Service is part of St Christopher’s Hospice in London, UK. Around 200 children and young people aged three to 18, who are experiencing loss through death, are referred each year from five south London boroughs.
