Diocese of Norwich training to support bereaved youth  

The Children, Youth and Families Team at the Diocese of Norwich are teaming up with Nelson’s Journey to run an evening workshop on how to support young people who are experiencing bereavement.

On Monday, December 4, 7pm - 9.30pm at Diocesan House, Easton, Debbie Winteringham from Norfolk Bereavement Charity ‘Nelson’s Journey’ will be leading an evening workshop hosted by the Children, Youth and Families Team at the Diocese of Norwich

The training on ‘Working with Young People and Bereavement’ will talk about how to support and help young people cope when experiencing a bereavement.
Loss of a loved one or someone well known to us, whether expected or not, can be a hard situation to face, and bereavement affects people of all ages in many different ways.
Understanding bereavement and having practical ways to support individuals and discuss issues around death and remembrance can be a great help. 
Jonathan Richardson, Children, Youth and Families Development Officer for the Diocese of Norwich, said: “Bereavement can strike anyone but for children and young people it can be bewildering and lonely.  Often schools and churches are the first place people turn for support and we need to be ready.  Having the right words to say can make all the difference.  Nelson’s Journey bring practical examples that will help anyone engage with young people when they need it most.”
The session is open to anyone who would like to attend.
There is no charge for individuals from Church of England churches, church schools and Diocesan MAT Academies. The training is at a cost of £10 for individuals from other churches, community schools and academies. Please book in advance by clicking here.
