Child Loss Support – Caring : Learning : Sharing

Established in March 2022 (and currently awaiting Charity Commission registration) Child Loss Support NI provides emotional and practical support to bereaved parents and guardians – creating a supportive environment and social outlet for families following the loss of a child.  Offering connections, sign-posting and counselling, the organisation intended to deliver a mental health and wellbeing course focussing on healing and coping strategies for 15+ families over a 12 week period.  Learning more about the course content (practising mindfulness, expressive arts therapy, journaling, managing stress, anxiety and grief-related symptoms), the Committee gladly approved a grant of £1,500 from the Clothworkers’ NI Fund to help with the costs of two counsellors and facility hire.
