Help us to help bereaved young people back on their feet
Slide Away receives in excess of 100 referrals every year asking for support for bereaved children and those living with a family member with a terminal illness. Every child is offered a place at a workshop, memory day or our pre-bereavement group. Your support helps our work to continue. If you are an individual, group, school or business who is considering supporting our work and would like further information please contact Denise Ross on 07970 597715 or at email@example.com.

Where does your donation go?
||for a friendship band made with coloured thread, each colour picked to remind children and young people of the special people who are there for them on a difficult day.
||for a memory jar full of coloured salt, each colour representing a special memory.
||For a special 'scrap book' to save memories.
||for a memory box and decorations that children can make to keep safe mementoes of their special person.
||for books to give to children and young people. The books have special messages in them, for example reassuring young people that they are not alone or that their special person can live on with them in their heart and in their memories.
