1 in every 20 children aged 7-17 will experience the death of a parent.
In Australia, just over 300,000 children will lose a parent before they reach the age of 18. To put this into perspective, there is most likely a child grieving the loss of a parent in your child’s class at school. In addition to this, children also experience sibling and legal guardian loss.
Grieving children who have experienced the death of someone they love can feel isolated and alone. They require ongoing support in developing strategies to cope with and move forward with their lives following a significant loss.
At Feel the Magic, we provide grief education and support to bereaved children and their families to help alleviate the pain and isolation felt by the loss of a parent, sibling or legal guardian.
Join us as we create a world where children who are experiencing grief are supported to reach their full potential.
