Child Bereavement Charity supporting children and young people up to the age of 18 in the County of Hampshire who have lost someone significant in their lives.
Simon Says support children up to the age of 11 who have been bereaved of someone significant in their lives. We run a monthly support group in Hilsea and need volunteers to help for 3 hours once a month. Each month we tackle a different theme and use craft activities to help the children come to terms with their loss and emotions. For example, they may be feeling angry so we help them understand that this is normal and give them some tools to use to expel their anger in a positive way. It also gives them a chance to be around other bereaved children who may be feeling the same way.
There is plenty of variety in the group, you could work with the adults, run activities with the children, make the tea and coffee - whatever you are comfortable with.
Training is given.
