Edward’s Trust offers a holistic bereavement care service to young people following the death of a parent, carer or sibling in Birmingham and the West Midlands. Through this unique support, young lives that have been devastated by death are rebuilt and nurtured to ensure they reach their full potential.
Edward’s Trust offers a range of support for bereaved young people including one to one counselling, art therapy, attending support groups at our bereavement centre, accessing social activities with other young people surviving bereavement and support at school. The outreach work undertaken in schools makes the service accessible to young people who, for family or social reasons, would find it difficult to come to our centre. We organise a range of social and therapeutic activities and groups for bereaved young people. Without the right kind of support bereaved young people are vulnerable to long term difficulties which can impact on them physically as well as psychologically.

When I first met Steve, my Counsellor at Edward’s Trust, I was nervous and it felt scary to meet a stranger who wanted to talk to me about my Mum and my feelings. I soon got to know and trust him and we found lots of ways to help me to talk about my feelings and remember my Mum.
Edward’s Trust is brilliant. They have not only supported me with my bereavement but also helped me to become the man I am today. I cannot thank Steve and the rest of the Edward’s Trust team enough!
