Short Term Theraputic Group Programme

  • Need

    Need

    We do not believe that any child or family should feel alone in their grief. Having support at this difficult time has an impact on the child's future.

    Solution

    We aim to give every child that goes through our group the skills and confidence to move forward remembering their special person in a healthy and positive way.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To support a child who has had someone special to them die.

    Activities

    » Provide our short term theraputic group programme.

    By providing a group programme where the child takes part in a number of activities to help them with their grief.


  • Impact

    Impact

    At the end of each group programme we hold a review night where the family and children fill in a form to help us move forward and make sure we best meet their needs. We keep in touch with our families and have an open door policy. Many families do not reconnect suggesting the service we provide is enough.

    Risk

    If a child attended the group and felt it was not for them there is no obligation to come back and one to one sessions could be arranged if appropriate.

    Reporting

    We can feedback on the success of the group and how the child responded.

I found Jeremiah's Journey extremely helpful. The group helped me with my loss in many ways.
