National Grief Awareness Week 2nd to 8th DecemberDecember 2, 2020 // No Comments
This annual national event is driven by The Good Grief Trust, the UK’s leading umbrella charity, bringing all UK bereavement services, support organisations and helplines together under one central database. Offering early signposting to a choice of support for both the bereaved and those working with them.
They aim to normalise grief and get people talking about this typically uncomfortable subject on a national platform. Their vision is to offer a toolkit of support from DAY ONE for anyone suffering a bereavement, anywhere in the country.
The event highlights Penhaligon’s Friends, a Cornish charity supporting bereaved children, young people, parents and carers throughout the county. It offers children and young people the chance to meet others and share their experiences, as well as practical resources for children and parents.
