Who do we help?
We provide guidance for any bereaved person – referrals can be through any means, including self-referral. If you are looking for bereavement support, please look through our ‘Bereavement Support’ pages or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your situation and we can send you personalised advice and information. We mainly work within the Cheshire area, but we have no boundary of support and therefore, will aim to support anyone who contacts us.
On request, we can send out bereavement packs for children that contain a bereavement work book and a story book about grief. We have 2 types of pack: one for primary aged children and another for secondary age. We also have books for adults on how to support children with loss, these include specific circumstances such as explaining suicide, manslaughter, military deaths and when a loved one has a terminal illness. We can also offer schools and professionals advice and materials on how to support bereaved young people.
Talking and creative therapies:
Our main aim once you contact us will be finding bereavement support of your choice. If support is not available for your circumstances from existing organisations, then we will endeavour to provide it for you. Examples of support we have provided are: counselling, art therapy, dance therapy, music therapy and financial help to travel to bereavement support.
Speaking at courses for professionals:
Helen has given numerous talks to professionals and faith groups on subjects such as: How to support children through loss, particularly for those working within education; Why Elsie Ever After exists and the importance of bereavement support in our area; A personal perspective for parents on supporting children through loss; How to support grieving parents in the direct aftermath of death, particularly for the health profession; and signs of comfort and the place of faith within bereavement.
