Agency Training for Individuals, Schools & Organisations

Through the delivery of childhood grief training, we help to mitigate against the negative outcomes that can be disproportionately experienced by bereaved children and young people.

We have over ten years’ experience of providing support to bereaved children and young people, and of working alongside practitioners to support them to do the same.  Our training programme is flexible and includes:

Bespoke training for networks of practitioners such as family support workers, healthcare providers, school counsellors, teaching assistants, SENCOs, Headteachers and classroom teachers

Short interactive Childhood Bereavement Awareness ‘twilight’ sessions (3 hours)

Our aim is to ensure that all practitioners can develop the skills and confidence to support grieving children and young people in their care.

Please contact Balloons Agency Trainer, Donna James on donnajames@balloonscharity.co.uk or 01392 826064 to find out how we can help you to help the children and families you work with.
