The Children and Families Support service offers specialist support for children and young people (aged 0-16) who are dealing with the incurable illness of a relative. It provides age-appropriate information and support pre- and post-bereavement, as appropriate to the individual circumstances of the child or young person and their family members. The service is open to all children aged 0-16 across Edinburgh and the Lothians. In addition, young people aged 16-18 can be offered choice about whether to engage in the children and young people’s service or adult services, depending on personal preference and individual circumstances. They also provide support in schools and training on Loss, Grief and Bereavement.
