The UK Trauma Council (UKTC) and three child bereavement charities - Child Bereavement UK, Winston’s Wish and the Childhood Bereavement Network - have launched a portfolio of free, evidence-based resources for parents, school staff, bereavement services and NHS mental health services supporting children and young people.

The resources are designed to provide the knowledge to recognise traumatic bereavement, advice on how to put appropriate support in place, and guidance on how to refer on to more specialist services. They include a guide for children and young people, a guide for parents and carers, a guide for schools and colleges and a clinical guide to helping children and young people who are struggling with bereavement.
