We have three teams that offer face-to-face support located in the North West of England (Greater Manchester), the South East of England (Hove) and the South West of England (Cheltenham). The South East team also support children and their families bereaved in the Grenfell tower fire.
The core area for each of the teams is shown below. In our core areas, we support children bereaved of a parent/carer or sibling whatever the cause of death. We use different community venues as well as our offices (Hove, Cheltenham) within these areas to see families. We also see bereaved families who live outside of the core area if they are willing and able to travel to meet us in one of our venues.
These are an opportunity to meet with our family service practitioners in person. They are a chance to learn more about our service and also get some immediate advice or support. Parents, carers, professionals, other family members as well as children and young people are welcome. They offer support for anticipated death and also for bereavements outside of the immediate family. See below for drop-in locations and time in each of our core areas.
