How do I refer a child or young person to Slide Away?
Slide Away receives referrals for support through schools through its School Bereavement Contacts (SBC).
The SBC is a designated staff member who has volunteered to liaise with Slide Away and who has received guidance and training from Slide Away to support bereaved children.
If you are a school who is new to Slide Away, please get in touch to discuss your referral, nominate a staff member and to receive initial training.
Slide Away can help families, or professionals supporting families, to initiate a referral if they haven’t been able to get support through their school.
If you are an existing School Bereavement Contact, and you need to refer a child, please get in touch to receive our referral form URL. We do not accept referrals by any other means.
