Mosaic – Supporting Bereaved Children is a Dorset based charity providing early bereavement intervention to children and young people. We have supported them in their work over the last 3 years when they have seen a significant increase in referrals in all areas of the services they provide. Through their Early Bereavement Invention Project they give telephone support in the days and weeks either prior to or following a bereavement and, later on, family visits when they seek to ‘normalise’ the grief process. Feedback from this support and guidance has been excellent with many families saying it has helped them to understand their feelings and emotions, work though their grief and find ways of remembering their special person. The young people affected are also able to take part in therapeutic residential weekends and social activities as their lovely picture shows.
