Support for young people

Support for children and young people

Like adults, young people respond to bereavement in different ways. The experience can make them more vulnerable to health disorders, lower self-esteem, isolation and detachment. But with good support, children, young people and their families can overcome the disadvantages associated with bereavement.


Phoenix at St Giles offers a range of flexible interventions including:

  • One-to-one support
  • Family group support
  • Peer support group
  • Other peer and family support groups including activities such as boxing and crafts.

We also work in partnership with other organisations, offering advice, support and training to schools and professionals to enable them to support young people who have lost a loved one.

This means we can build a more resilient community where children experiencing bereavement will be supported, not just by St Giles but by the whole community.

If you would like to discuss how we can help you, please get in touch by email at  or 01543 434536
