Bereavement support

My young daughter aged 13 is now struggling with the passing of her dad 8 years ago . Teenage years are difficult anyway. She has started to have nightmares and is feeling anxious. Can anyone direct me to child bereavement support. School are unable to help

Hi Dawn 70,

I’m really sorry to hear about your daughter’s dad. It must have been really tough on the whole family, and I can hear how important it is to you to support your daughter.

Child bereavement UK have a website and helpline which can offer advice and help to point you towards support services available in your area: https://www.childbereavementuk.org/supporting-bereaved-children-and-young-people

If she is struggling with anxiety and feels up to it, she could also talk to her GP about how she’s been feeling.

Take care,
Hazel
