Grief Encounter - helping children through bereavement

We support bereaved children, young people and their families to help alleviate the pain caused by the death of someone close. Our services are free, funded through the generosity of our supporters.

We help you address a multitude of challenging issues following the death of a loved one, alleviating the hurt and confusion caused, whilst promoting healing.

We provide information and advice following a bereavement - helping you deal with the  difficult feelings you are experiencing, such as, shock, despair, denial, anger, fear, guilt, anxiety, relief and sadness - all these are ‘normal’ emotions following a sudden or anticipated bereavement.

We provide professional counsellors, trained in the area of bereavement to determine a personal plan to support each individual and family we work with.

We have a helpline staffed by trained professionals to support bereaved children or families with advice and guidance. Call us during office hours Monday to Friday. And we offer a dedicated e-mail support service, answered by a qualified advisor. 

If you are a young person or a parent wanting any bereavement support or advice, please contact us at or call our helpline on 020 8371 8455 (option 1) and we will be happy to help.

We also provide advice to professionals and schools.
