Acorns provide emotional support to families of babies, children and young people accessing Acorns services, from diagnosis through to end of life and following the death of a child. An assessment of each family’s needs is undertaken by a family team worker, who is fully qualified with a background in nursing and/or social care. They will then offer and provide pre and post-bereavement support to meet emotional and practical needs of families as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
Siblings are supported through a specialist sibling service which may take the form of group support, time-limited individual support or a bespoke residential programme.
