Richmond’s Hope provides support for children and young people aged 4-18 years who have been bereaved. The charity provides a safe space for children to work through their grief both verbally and non verbally, to preserve memories of the person who died, to explore their feelings, to be given coping strategies and to understand the impact the bereavement has had on their lives.
As each child’s grief is different, we provide individual programmes of care for each child. Our dedicated team of bereavement workers support children on a one to one basis.
We are also passionate about educating individuals and groups about the language surrounding grief and offer training and interest visits. The training we offer to external organisations aims to raise awareness of young people’s grief and how it affects their lives.
In line with current Scottish Government guidelines to work from home wherever possible, we have temporarily suspended our face to face bereavement support service. Our staff teams in Edinburgh and Glasgow are working hard to deliver support online if appropriate and if not, by telephone. If you are currently on our waiting list, we will be in touch as soon as we can to discuss your support needs. In the meantime, if you need advice, please call, email or click ‘Contact Us’ on the website to complete the online form and we will respond as soon as possible.
