Thank you to Rosedale Training for making this helpful film available for our website. We think it will help any young person understand funerals (burial and cremation) and decide whether to attend and what role they can play in saying goodbye to a loved one.

If you are supporting a young person you may be interested to purchase a copy of 'Tough Stuff Journal: Someone has died'.

Newly published is the new booklet in the Tough Stuff Journal family - Someone has Died. This is aimed at supporting young people wrestling with the loss of someone close. The journal is designed to be used by a young person accompanied by a trusted adult - a parent or relative, youth worker, social worker or school mentor.

The journal is designed deliberately in 'free form', can be written in and asks open questions to encourage the young person to reflect on and record their feelings about the loss.

The Tough Stuff journals have come into existence as a result of the work of Pete English with young people over many years. Many of the ideas are credited to young people who he has worked alongside.  Pete has worked with talented designers and illustrators to come up with the Tough Stuff journal - a great resource - highly commended by Child Bereavement UK, which children and young people will want to pick up and work through with their teacher, a parent or counsellor.
