Holding On Letting Go helps bereaved children and their families throughout the whole of Kent.  We offer a bereaved child a place on one of our bereavement support weekends where we can give them coping strategies and an opportunity to share their story with other children who have been affected by a significant death of a loved one. We also hold a parent/carer support group.  The children find attending a weekend very beneficial as they meet other children who are also struggling to come to terms with their grief and are able to talk in a safe and confidential environment.  


We are currently holding 16 bereavement support weekends this year and will be helping around 180 families during this time.  We now hold a weekend specifically for parents and their children who have been affected by stillbirth/neonatal death.  We also have a weekend that is for children who have been affected by suicide/traumatic death.
