They hold bereavement groups for children and teenagers as well as for parents and carers.
Sandy Bear Children’s Bereavement Charity has been awarded funding by Welsh Government to launch a pilot project into Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire to support children and young people who are suffering following a bereavement through suicide. This pilot project will support up to 16 children and young people (aged 5-18) who live in Ceredigion/Carmarthenshire. The project will give children and young people access to both 1:1 and peer support, both led by experienced child bereavement practitioners. Referrals can be made via the forms on their website and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
