The Childhood Bereavement Network

Having to be apart from loved ones when they are so seriously ill that they might die is one of the very worst aspects of the Covid-19 outbreak. Some children will have experienced the death of someone important to them.

The outbreak of Covid-19 means that many aspects of children's lives are changing. School is closed for most, lots of parents are working from home, and families are having to spend time apart when they would like to be together. The news is full of talk of the virus and the effect it is having.
Many children will have questions and worries about the virus, but those who have experienced the death of someone important or who have an ill family member might be particularly worried. The website for this organisation has some tips about supporting bereaved children during the outbreak. http://www.childhoodbereavementnetwork.org.uk/help-around-a-death/covid-19.aspx
