Parents & Carers
Wiltshire Treehouse wants to see a world where every bereaved child and young person can receive guidance and support to help them through their grieving process.
We will enable those in our local communities to develop the coping strategies, skills and confidence they need to thrive.
When you are grieving yourself, it can be very hard to help your child cope with the death of a family member. Everyone in the family will be experiencing intense emotions and it can feel impossible to offer them support and deal with your own feelings.
The way they are reacting can feel very confusing and keep changing unexpectedly. Just when you are feeling least able to manage, it seems that the demands on you as the adult in the family can seem at their greatest.
Your friends and wider family can often feel at a loss too and don’t know how to support you. You may not even feel you have a wider network to call upon. We are here.
How we can help?
We can offer some advice on the telephone and a listening ear.
Sometimes all you need to know is that you are already doing the right things or to talk to someone outside the immediate situation who has experience and training in bereavement support.
Sometimes you will decide it would be useful for you or your other family members to get some further support from us. If our service isn't right for you we can help you find other places that can help you.
We can talk over the phone or meet with you and your child(ren) face to face.
