Welcome to Children’s Grief Awareness Week: 16 - 22 November 2023
We are delighted to bringing back Sharing Shapes for 2023. This concept worked so well for the children and young people who participated last year. This year, we want to see more Sharing Shapes being submitted to create a giant mural of support for bereaved children and young people.
This year, our theme is 'The Shape of Your Support'. We are focusing on the people around a bereaved child or young person (beyond their friends or family) that can be there to support them through their grief. You can see the amazing #OurShapeofSupport mural above and download your own copy of it here.
Our opinion surveys for children and young people
We're launching two short surveys for children and young people, asking about their opinion on what changes would most help bereaved children and young people. Encourage the children and young people you know to take part. The surveys are quick and simple and take 5 mins to complete.
