Prior to the formation of Mosaic, support for bereaved children and young people in Dorset was extremely limited. Whilst local hospice care recognises the need for family support pre and post death, these services do not usually extend to causes of death other than terminal illness.
Founded in June 2007, Mosaic was created to fill the gap in the provision of bereavement services for children and young people across the county. We provide counselling for children and young people who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or loved one through any cause of death including suicide, murder, terminal illness and sudden or traumatic death. We also offer support to families facing the death of a loved one.
