Christmas should be a time of fun, excitement and family for children but for bereaved children it is likely to be a difficult time.  Our Christmas 2021 Campaign aims to ensure that bereaved children in Kent continue to have the support they need. Donate now or Read more.

 

 

Slide Away’s Vision

Our vision is for all children in Kent to have access to a bereavement support service, which acknowledges their grief and experience of loss following the death of a close relative or friend.

Slide Away offers a bereavement support service to children and young people in West Kent...

Slide Away offers support to children and young people in West Kent who have been bereaved of a family member or friend.  We also support children and young people who have a parent or sibling with a life limiting illness.
