I’m Jess, I am new to Star Bereavement as of December 2022 and work as a community fundraiser.
I have worked in alternative education provisions and have a background in education. I studied psychology and grief at university and have a huge appreciation for the important services Star are providing for children and young people navigating grief.
Through personal experiences and my research into social support and bereavement I have seen such a need for the services Star Bereavement are providing, tackling the taboo often surrounding bereavement. I am excited to be joining Star in their fundraising journey and hope to spread Star’s important message across the Wakefield district. Hopefully reaching the young people and children who need it most.
