Edward’s Trust has been providing vital services to families for over 32 years. The James Beattie Trust has kindly funded us to support children in Wolverhampton who are bereaved of a parent, sibling, grandparent or friend. 2020 has been an especially difficult year for grieving families, and especially for grieving children. Feelings of isolation are common in grief, with the Covid pandemic isolating people even further, and the usual comforting rituals around death – funerals and wakes, hugs from extended family and friends – are restricted. Our support helps children talk about how they are feeling and helps them remember their loved one in a way that acknowledges the long-term nature of their grief but allows them to live their lives to the fullest.
