Read About us

We would like to thank the Grief Support Worker and the Balloons charity for the amazing help and support they offered my son and myself. He loved his sessions with his Grief Support Worker, they have been invaluable to him.

It has really helped him to talk about the loss of his feelings surrounding it all… From the first call I made I was supported and reassured. Thank you to everyone at Balloons.
