Richmond’s Hope supports bereaved children and young people between the ages of 4 and 18. At the heart of Richmond’s Hope’s programme of support are specialised grief activities and therapeutic play which help bereaved children & young people improve their mental health & wellbeing by working out their grief through verbal and non-verbal ways.
Children who come to Richmond’s Hope are supported by dedicated specialist bereavement support workers for 40 minutes once a week for an average of 12 sessions. All our services and sessions are free and we operate an open referral system.
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 and adhering to all COVID-19 safety measures we are pleased to announce that we are now back to normal working practise and seeing children face to face for their bereavement support.
