‘Matters of Life and Death’ Child Bereavement Conference

February 26, 2015   //   No Comments

Did you know that mortality rates are higher in areas of deprivation?

Child Bereavement UK are organising a conference on the importance of early intervention for bereaved families in areas of deprivation on 13th March at Central Hall, Westminster, London. Keynote speakers will be the Rt Hon Alan Johnson MP and Michael Rose, author and poet.

The conference will address the use of bereavement support as a preventive intervention in reducing later recourse to more costly services and in strengthening the resilience and emotional well-being of bereaved adults and children.  Child Bereavement UK will discuss their three year, Department of Health funded project to identify and enhance bereavement support in areas of deprivation around England.
