Child Grief Awareness Week: Children should know that it is okay to ask for help

18th November 2021

News Our Services

To mark Child Grief Awareness Week, we asked our Children & Young People’s Bereavement Support Practitioner, Kate Hyde, to talk about her role of supporting children experiencing loss and grief when they are faced with losing a loved one.

Kate supports children and young people across Dorset, in schools, at the hospice, and in the community. She is committed to ensuring that the child or young person’s voice is heard, and their wishes are respected.

Everybody grieves when somebody they love dies, including children. We believe that children should have the opportunity to talk about how they’re feeling, and to ask questions so that they can grieve appropriately.  Our message during this awareness week, and beyond, is that children should be encouraged to talk to someone and to ask for help.
