ANNOUNCEMENT: Following the recent developments regarding coronavirus and subsequent advice from Public Health England, we have taken the decision to pause our face to face support with bereaved children and young people and cancel the Nelson’s Journey Easter egg hunt.
All families with support sessions (both 1:1 and our planned therapeutic weekend) booked to take place between now and the end of March will be contacted by the Child Bereavement Support Worker to discuss and we will be reviewing the situation at the beginning of April.
All those that have booked tickets to attend the Easter egg hunt will be contacted today.
Our main priority is the health and safety of the children and families that we work with, supporters, staff team and wider community, and we do not want to put anyone at unnecessary risk.
As you can appreciate, these uncertain times will have an impact across the economy and are a concern to us as a charity reliant on support from the local community to exist. Please bear with us and we will provide further updates as things change.
We apologise to anyone this may affect and are sending our very best wishes to all who are being impacted by this virus.
We have enabled our staff to work from home wherever possible and we are working to try and ensure our Support Line remains accessible enabling those with concerns for the wellbeing of bereaved children and young people to speak with a Child Bereavement Support Worker over the telephone.
We will keep you all updated as the situation changes. Thank you for your support and patience.
All at Nelson’s Journey
