When we set up Josephine’s Star, we knew from experience how important access to the appropriate support at the appropriate time could be for bereaved children and their families. Services for grieving children do not exist everywhere for every child who might need it. In our own small way, we wanted to help close that gap in Somerset. We hope that one day every child, everywhere will have access to bereavement support should they need and want it.
- To offer good quality bereavement support in Somerset for children and their families who have experienced the death of someone significant.
- To work with and support other professionals working with children and families who may be grieving.
- To share best practice with our colleagues and contribute to developing services and support for bereaved children.
