Support when someone important to you dies

Our vision is that all bereaved children and young people who live within the region will have access to the appropriate support they need to rebuild their lives when someone important to them has died.

We work proactively to support children, young people and their families when someone important has died, guiding them in their journey through grief and helping them to develop the necessary tools to be able to move forward in their lives.

Support for children, young people, young adults & families

We put children and young people first, empowering them to move forward and succeed. We think about children and young people first in everything we do.

Our aims are to provide information and education around bereavement, serious illness and loss to children, young people, their families and professionals.

To reduce the isolation felt by bereaved children and young people by providing appropriate support around bereavement and loss to children and young people in Wakefield.

What We Offer

Fundraising & Volunteering Opportunities

Fundraisers, volunteers and community support are vital for us to be able to continue our work

We want to support you in whatever it is you do; fundraising should be fun (as well as financially beneficial) so do what you want to do! You could fundraise on your own, or with friends and family. You could get your school or work involved, perhaps your college, university or faith group – we will support you! We have collection tins, buckets, banners and t-shirts you can borrow.

Every year, people around the UK use Dying Matters Awareness Week as a moment to encourage all communities to get talking in whatever way, shape or form works for them. (6th-12th MAY 2024)
This year’s theme, ‘The way we talk about Dying Matters’, focuses on the language that we use, and conversations we have, around death and dying – specifically between healthcare professionals and patients, their carers and their families.
