WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?

Help 2 Make Sense supports young people, teenagers and school children who have experienced a bereavement.

WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

The death of a mum, dad, brother or sister is the most fundamental loss a young person will ever face. For a start, they may find it difficult to concentrate at school, they may be confused or may even have negative feelings about their situation that are difficult to get rid of.

 

HOW DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION HELP?

On our website we provide a toolkit with tips and resources, specifically targeted towards young people, that can help them make sense of their grief.  Additionally we provide links out to other resources such as counselors, podcasts, resource directories.

While Help 2 Make Sense focuses on young people, they are part of the larger Winston's Wish children's bereavement charity. 

We were the first charity to establish child bereavement support services in the UK and continue to lead the way in providing specialist child bereavement support services across the UK, including in-depth therapeutic help in individual, group and residential settings.

We have understood the impact of bereavement at a young age and have developed a range of practical support and guidance on bereavement to children, their families and professionals via a national helpline and publications for all ages.

We offer specialist support programmes for children affected by deaths related to murder, manslaughter, suicide or the military community.

Our National Freephone Helpline is a vital support tool for those coping with bereavement. It is manned by trained clinical practitioners and is free and confidential. Call 08088 020 021 for free advice and support.

Our publications and resources are designed to offer practical help and support to bereaved children and their families and will be of interest to parents or other family members, carers, teachers and other professionals.

Listening to sad music after losing a loved one, being diagnosed with a terminal illness, or finalizing a divorce might seem counterintuitive, but this somber sounding activity has been proven to help.

Nothing can prepare you for grief, nor is there a right or wrong way to deal with it, but sad music is an easily accessible and highly effective tool that can help you begin to heal.
