New, free resources to support bereaved and grieving children

Each year, over 41,000 children experience bereavement. Child Bereavement UK estimates one in 29 school children have lost a parent or sibling – that’s one child in every class. 92% of young people will experience a significant bereavement before the age of 16, yet according to a 2016 YouGov survey, only one in 10 adults bereaved as a child said their school was very supportive of them at the time of their bereavement, and 6% of British adults still believe it’s never appropriate to talk to children of any age about death.

As part of our continued mission to create a happier, healthier society, together with Happiful Magazine and our counsellors, we have created a new series of free resources focusing on childhood bereavement. Aiming to support parents, teachers, preschool and primary school aged children, you can discover our full range of free resources and articles:
