We are always looking at ways of supporting children through their feelings. Sometimes children can find it really difficult to even know themselves what they are feeling and why. Our Child Bereavement Support Workers use an activity to help young people understand where these feelings could come from and how to deal with them.
Nelson’s Journey held an activity day for a group of children aged 2-6 years at Tots Town in October. Each child attended the day to remember a special person in their lives that has died. The children took part in a range of activities to help them remember and to support them as they grow. They also had an amazing time playing in Tots Town, with an abundance of hairstyling, building, cake making and shoe buying going on!
Today marks World Suicide Prevention Day, raising awareness in order to provide worldwide commitment and action to prevent people taking their own lives.
