Nelson’s Journey provides different services depending on the individual needs of each child / young person. Our support may include:
- Telephone and email guidance through our Support Line.
- A professional assessment of the child / young person’s needs by one of our Child Bereavement Support Workers. This gives an opportunity for the child / young person to talk about their feelings and memories of who died, and talk about ways to cope with their feelings and remember their special person.
- Following an assessment, it may be that further sessions are appropriate. Each session is around an hour, and sessions can be spread over several months depending on their needs.
- Group sessions, such as workshops or positive activities, may be offered where children can meet others with similar bereavement needs and experiences
We also provide freely downloadable resources below which you can use at home to support your child.
Nelson’s Journey can discuss with you which of these services are most appropriate for your child’s needs. Most children won’t need access to all of the services that we offer for their needs to be met.
