Support for schools
How it works
We offer time with a counsellor or therapist over the phone or online. Team-wide training or support is also available subject to availability.
What does it involve?
Our therapists and counsellors can offer support, strategies and ideas for working with supported children and siblings going through diagnosis to the end of life period or bereavement. These short-term, interventions are designed to inform and empower teachers and, where necessary, signpost to additional services.
Is there a cost?
*Our support to schools is free, however trainings involve substantial preparation time and so we do ask schools to give a voluntary donation to the charity when we are preparing a training.
Support from schools
Is your school looking to support us through fundraising events, challenges or activities, or would you like us to deliver an assembly that gives an overview of our work? Learn more on our support from schools page.
