Supporting suddenly bereaved children and young people seminars

There's just less than a month to go until our first essential 'Supporting suddenly bereaved children and young people' seminar, which is being held in Manchester on 30 June. The second seminar will be held in London on 13 July.

We've got a great range of speakers for the events, and are delighted that a wide variety of experts will be presenting at the seminars.

Sessions at the Manchester event will include bereavement care guidance from Professor Jacqueline Barnes, an overview of support methods available for bereaved children with special educational needs, and a discussion of the support needs of children and young people bereaved by suicide.

Crucially, attendees at both seminars will be offered the opportunity to discuss best practice in support methods with a Brake bereaved volunteer, who will overview their experiences after a sudden bereavement. 

There are very limited places remaining for these events, and we would encourage any interested professionals to book now to avoid disappointment!
