For over 50 years The National Children’s Bureau (NCB), has existed to make sure that our education, health and social care systems are as effective as possible, strengthen families and helping children overcome the many challenges that can hold them back. NCB is needed now more than ever.
An unavoidable consequence of this crisis is that more children will face bereavement. Social distancing means that it is harder for grieving families and friends to support each other and to gather to say goodbye. Schools are closed, and existing bereavement support services cannot deliver their face to face support in the usual way.
In response to the crisis, NCB’s Childhood Bereavement Network has created free resources for children, families, and bereavement services to support them through COVID-19. You can find information to support someone you know who may need it here.
With your support, NCB can provide further resources support bereaved children during this crisis and advocate for them to ensure that the Government supports bereaved children and their families in the months and years to come.
