Supporting Bereaved Children

website banner

Mosaic is a Dorset wide charity offering a pathway of support to bereaved children, young people and their families. We also work with young people who are facing the death of a loved one.
Mosaic provides individual, family and group support. Every child has the opportunity to attend our residential weekend programme where they can meet others and share their experiences.

Children & Young People

Mosaic is here to help young people like you who have experienced the death of someone special.

All the people who work for Mosaic have had special training to help them to help you understand how you are feeling.

We usually come to visit you in your home or at school, wherever you feel the most comfortable. We will tell you about how we can help and find out about how you are feeling. 

Parents & Carers

When a loved one dies it is normal to experience a range of overwhelming and sometimes confusing emotions.

You may find it difficult to cope with the everyday practical and emotional needs of your children alongside dealing with traumatic events surrounding the death and changes in your circumstances.

We provide advice to parents and carers on how to support a child during such a difficult time.

Training & Advice for Professionals

Mosaic provide:

- A full range of bereavement training days for professionals 

- Tailor-made childhood bereavement training for professionals and groups who work with children
