My son Oliver was just 12 years old when his sister Holly was murdered. The advice I received from the Grief Encounter Project enabled me to understand that we could learn to grieve for Holly in a way that paved the way for a family future together.
For us as adults, the reality of trying to cope after losing someone special from our lives is a lengthy and difficult task master to appease. Imagine, therefore, how the effects of loss impacts on a child, both in the short and long term.
Here at the Grief Encounter Project, the difficult subject of bereavement is tackled head on by offering practical methods and advice for children and young people to learn how to cope, adjust and continue in their young lives.
If you are able to make a contribution to the Grief Encounter Project then please accept my thanks on behalf of the countless children and families whose lives you have just enhanced.
