Introducing our new Senior Bereavement Practitioner
Our new Senior Bereavement Practitioner, Penny Harris, is a longstanding member of the Slide Away team and will be a familiar face to many. Penny will bring her wealth of experience, expertise and skills to this new role to provide enhanced support and greater continuity of support to children and their families/carers.
The role has been introduced to ensure a smooth transition and a familiar face to all children who come to a workshop. Working under the Clinical Service Manager, the Senior Bereavement Practitioner will undertake visits to schools to deliver individual support to children and young people before they come on a workshop and will lead workshops with the assistance of our bereavement support practitioners and volunteers.
All referrals received will still be triaged by our Clinical Services Manager, Laura Thompson.
Congratulations on your new appointment, Penny.
