Slide Away Covid-19 Response – 2 April 2020

In accordance with government advice and following the closure of schools, Slide Away has taken the decision to postpone all of our face-to-face services to schools, young people and their families for the foreseeable future.

This means that, with immediate effect, we will not be offering Memory Days, 2-day Workshops, our monthly pre-bereavement support group or meeting potential School Bereavement Co-ordinators for Tool Kit training.

We have now contacted families and schools affected by this decision via email.

We are still fully functional behind the scenes, whilst keeping safe. We are still accepting referrals from schools and our Workshop Assessment Co-ordinators are busy doing telephone assessments of current referrals and we are planning for when we are able to resume face-to-face services.

We are very aware that Slide Away's work is about bringing together bereaved children and their families to alleviate the 'isolation' of grief. We will, therefore, be available to take a phone call or email from parents, carers, and schools to answer any questions you may have about supporting children in the meantime. Our contact number is 07970 597715 email slideawayone@aol.com.

We will be contacting families and schools again once we are able to resume our services.

If you would like to make a donation to Slide Away at this time, please do so via our Virgin Money Giving page by clicking here.

Thank you for your understanding.
