Children’s Grief Awareness Week UK takes place this year between 17th and 23rd November. It’s designed to raise awareness of bereaved children and young people in the UK and how providing those affected with free, professional support can make the world of difference to their future. Children’s Grief Awareness Week UK 2016 is an opportunity for us all to acknowledge the painful impact that the death of a loved one has on the life of a child, and an opportunity to make sure these children receive the support they need. The theme for the week is #MakeTime2Listen – we can all make a difference to make sure that bereaved children and young people’s voices are heard.
