It can be really difficult to support a child who is grieving the loss of a significant person at the same time as managing your own grief. At Edward’s Trust we support bereaved parents/carers of a child or young person who is currently accessing support through Edward’s Trust and who also requires support with their grief.
We recognise that having a space to work through your own grief can give you more emotional space to support your grieving child/children. Our therapists work alongside the children’s team to understand the challenges experienced across the generations. c
Voices of our bereaved adults
People who have been bereaved often say that they feel so alone in their grief and think that no one else understands. A number of our bereaved adults took part in a filming project because they wanted to have their voices heard and for others to know that are not alone in feeling what they feel.
Sunny was bereaved of his wife Andrea. Once his daughter came to support from Edward’s Trust we were also able to support him.
