Edward’s Trust community of young people
We run social events for young people who are in our Edward’s Trust community on a regular basis from boxercise to biking to baking…. Sometimes being a bereaved young person can feel a lonely place, so we provide a space (& some fun) to be with people of a similar age who have been through similar experiences.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about our Social events diary.
We want young people to have a say in how we support other young people, so this group of young people get together 4 times a year to share their ideas about resources, planning socials or remembrance events, doing fundraisers. We’ve just finished making a film together about the work of Edward’s Trust.
