Children's Grief Awareness Week - 15th to 21st November 2018

Children's Grief Awareness Week 2018 will run from 15-21 November with the theme #RememberWhen

The Week is a chance for us to come together to show our support for bereaved children across the UK. Organisations across the UK will be raising awareness of the grieving children in their community, and those supporting them.

The theme for the Week is #RememberWhen – encouraging families to share memories together of the person who has died. Whether it’s a place, a joke, a food or a story, we’re giving children and young people a chance to talk about their loved one, and to find out more about them from friends and family. Organisations supporting bereaved children can use the Week to showcase some of the memory work they do with families.

The Childrens' Bereavement Network is delighted to be teaming up with Grief Encounter to coordinate a whole week of activities. We will be active on social media, helping people raise awareness in their area. Local services can use the Week to show solidarity with children, young people and their families; raise awareness of their needs and how to help; and fundraise for their service.
