About us

Mosaic supports children and young people throughout Dorset...

Founded in 2007, Mosaic was created to fill the gap in bereavement provision across the county. Prior to this, support for bereaved children and young people was limited as the only support available was from hospices offering support after the death of someone suffering from a long-term illness.

Mosaic support children and young people who have been bereaved of someone special, such as a parent, sibling, friend or a member of their extended family. This includes all causes of death such as long-term illness, sudden death, suicide, murder or road traffic accident.

Our Aims & Mission


To develop a Dorset wide network of specialist bereavement support for all children, young people and their families.

To work collaboratively with other agencies to enable a cohesive framework of support before, during and after the death of someone close.

To create a child centred service which offers a pathway of support for bereaved children, young people and their families.

To provide support for those young people facing the death of a loved one.
