Hi everyone, this week I am chatting to Paul Moore and Di Stubbs, from Winston’s Wish. Winston’s Wish is a childhood bereavement charity and speaking with them has really opened my eyes to the amount of kids that are facing these situations every day. I needed a hug after recording this.
Paul and Di talk about how Winston’s Wish was setup, the way that the charity has adapted over the years and the ways that they are able to support children in the present day.
The 3 key takeaways:
111 children are bereaved of a loved one, everyday in the UK.
The importance of helping children to process their emotions and reacting to their specific needs, which can be greatly affected by their age.
A case study of the impact that a parent’s terminal illness, can have on a child.
