LivingGrief Let's talk about grief
565 Service - support for children, families and professionals working with young people

Our 565 Service provides emotional support for children, young people and families living with a family member with progressive illness. The service also provides bereavement support following the loss of a loved one, via family meetings, one to one counselling and group work.

We have lots of useful information tailored for parents, schools, teenagers and children, including a range of activities suitable for people of younger ages.
