Having experienced multiple bereavements as a child first-hand, I understand the impact not dealing with grief appropriately can have on you, even as an adult. I decided to become a trustee at Star Bereavement in 2022 to help children and young people deal with their loss and learn how to move forward with their lives, understanding how to live with grief on a day-to-day basis.

Professionally I have worked with children, young people, and adults, to understand and connect them to what matters to them, their communities, and their culture, recognising there is not a one size fits all approach and that there are many factors that impact on the heath and care we want to receive.

As a trustee, I hope to be able to bring together my professional and personal experiences to create a safe space for children and young people in Wakefield to talk about, explore and deal with their own personal grief.
