Objectives

Apart of Me is a multi-award-winning charity dedicated to supporting children, young people, and parents who are suffering through loss and trauma. Our mission is to give vulnerable children and families the power to get through the darkest moments of their life, such as when a parent dies, or when they are exposed to traumatic events. We combine world-renowned clinical expertise with innovative design.

We work across the UK and have an international crisis response, such as our recent Nadiya project – developing a new digital mental health service to help Ukrainian children and parents through the trauma of war. We created the world's first therapeutic mobile game to help young people through grief, a service now recommended by leading mental health professionals and services around the UK and overseas. We also provide advice, advocacy and training - including our Guides programme, which trains bereaved young people to become grief mentors.

 

Activities

We continue to develop and update our therapeutic game. We have also responded to the war in Ukraine, further developing and translating into Ukrainian,our guide for grown ups to help support those looking after or working with children who have been bereaved or are suffering from trauma.
