Mosaic - Supporting Bereaved Children
Coronavirus Update 20/03/2020
With the additional statement from the government regarding the closures of schools, nurseries and childcare settings, Mosaic would like to reassure everyone that we will still be answering queries to the service and doing our best to support everyone that needs it.
We know that this is a difficult time for everyone and there will be many of you who will already be feeling anxious and concerned, for whom this will be additional worry. Whilst normally we would ask for schools to contact us regarding children we are working with, due to the exceptional nature of these circumstances we will accept enquiries from anyone and will do our best to provide the support needed.
If you feel you need further advice on supporting people’s mental wellbeing through this situation, please consider the following resources;

Our best wishes to everyone at this difficult time
