This website is never going to try to give practical help or advice to young people coping with loss. If I’m honest – I don’t want to. My own grief is so alien to me, that I don’t feel in a position to try and advise or help other people. However, there are lots of fantastic charities and organisations that do offer help.

Here’s a list of places that might be able to help you out, however you’re feeling. Please drop me a line if you want to add to this list.

Grief Encounter – helping children through bereavement

Cruse Bereavement Care

Winston’s Wish

Child Bereavement UK

Mind’s page on coping after someone dies

The Loss Foundation – specifically focussing on bereavement to cancer
