Holding On Letting Go is a Charity, which supports bereaved children, young people, (6-16) and their families and carers in Kent and Medway who have experienced the death of an important person in their lives.
Children, young people, parents and carers are offered support at our bereavement weekend programmes which are held throughout the year and are non-residential. Food and drink are provided throughout the programme and dietary needs are catered for if indicated.
Attending one of the grief support programmes enables the child or young person to;
Meet other children and young people who have experienced bereavement
Be listened to by people who understand their feelings and experience
Have the opportunity to explore and express their feelings through special activities
Tell their story and ask questions in a safe environment
Hold onto good memories and learn how to let go of unhappy ones
Find new ways to cope with their grief and have fun
We invite bereaved parents and carers to be supported through the parent and carers service. Managing your own feelings as well as your children’s grief can be overwhelming. This group is a safe place where parents and carers can find support, understand their feelings and explore ways of coping with bereaved children and young people as well as managing their own experience of grief.
This group is held in a different building in the same location as the children’s service. Refreshments are provided.
These sessions support the parent/carer to;
Tell their story or just be in the group and listen
Meet other bereaved parents and carers
Understand the child’s or young person’s grief
Share different ways of coping with bereavement in the family
Encourage communication with in the family
Access services and resources to support individual needs
