One-to-One Support for Young People

If you would like to talk to someone about how you are feeling following the death of someone close, our kind and compassionate volunteers are here to help. They have specialist training and experience of working with bereaved young people and offer a safe space for you to explore and express your feelings.

Support is available to you at any point following bereavement – whether your friend or loved one died recently or many years ago. Our approaches to therapy vary depending on your age and stage, and take into account your own individual personality and experience.

If appropriate, we can also work with schools, parents or carers to enable them to support you though the grieving process.

All our volunteers work to a strict code of ethics, which binds them to hold everything you say in confidence, unless they feel there is a risk to your life or the lives of others. You should know that our counsellors are all supervised - they may talk to their supervisor about your experience, but they will never share information that may identify you.

The first step to getting help is to call our National Bereavement Helpline.
