Richmond’s Hope supports bereaved children and young people between the ages of 4 and 18. At the heart of Richmond’s Hope’s programme of support are specialised grief activities and therapeutic play which help bereaved children & young people improve their mental health & wellbeing by working out their grief through verbal and non-verbal ways. Richmond's Hope provides a safe time and space for the children to explore their feelings and the impact of the death on their lives. Sessions are tailored to meet their need with activities centred on memories, feelings and healthy coping strategies. Children who come to Richmond’s Hope are supported by dedicated specialist bereavement support workers for 40 minutes once a week for an average of 12 sessions. All their services and sessions are free and they operate an open referral system.
