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:
