It can be extremely difficult when you lose someone you knew. Whether you’ve lost a family member, a friend, or a pet, you may feel a whole range of emotions.
Grief is an emotional response to this loss, and is a process rather than an event. It may affect how you feel physically, mentally and socially.
On this page, we have provided a few links to useful websites, to support parents and carers and books about grief which we hope will help your child come to terms with a loss.
https://youngminds.org.uk/find-help/feelings-and-symptoms/grief-and-loss/ - this is a great website for children, teenagers and adults. The video on this page is suitable for children in Year 3 upwards.
https://www.winstonswish.org/ - another excellent website which gives appropriate information for supporting children.
