Child Bereavement UK's short animated film 'Remembering someone special who has died' suggests ways that children and young people can remember someone important to them who has died.
A child or young person may miss their special person and feel sad when they think about them. They may even worry that they’ll forget what they were like. Finding ways to remember such as looking at photographs, talking about the person who has died or visiting a place they loved can help.
The film aims to encourage conversations and Child Bereavement UK hopes it will be helpful to families and their children who are missing someone.
Kindly funded by Memoria Funerals, the animated film can be found on Child Bereavement UK's website and is also used as part of the charity's supportive social media content.
Child Bereavement UK helps families to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. We support children and young people (up to the age of 25) when someone important to them has died or is not expected to live, and parents and the wider family when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying. We provide training to professionals in health and social care, education, and the voluntary and corporate sectors, equipping them to provide the best possible care to bereaved families.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
