Thanks to our friends at Winston’s Wish for sharing their thoughts on how to offer a child support around the death of a parent.
Child bereavement training is increasingly being recognised as essential part of the skillset for anyone working with children and young people.
The sad fact is, 92% of children and young people experience a significant bereavement before the age of 16 and one in 29 will be lose a sibling or parent. That’s one in every class. Yet a recent survey shows 80% of school staff have had no bereavement training.
