Welcome to Touchstones Child Bereavement Support.
Touchstones is a small, local charity with one very simple aim – to be there for any bereaved child and young person in North East Worcestershire – including Redditch, Bromsgrove, Wythall, Rubery, Hagley
Touchstones continues to support children and young people throughout the Covid 19 Pandemic. Please contact us if you need our support – and please donate / fund-raise for us – we urgently need your help in order to ensure we can continue to be there for all those that need us – thank you!
Every child or young person who goes through the tragedy of bereavement needs loving support as they face their loss, but sometimes additional support from outside their family can help them through their pain and grief. Our team have years of experience in working with children and young people struggling to deal with the loss of a loved one and we know we can help.
We provide free one-to-one support and weekend experiences for local children and young people who have had someone that they love very much die – and we believe we can make a difference.
Additionally, Touchstones is here to advise families and schools on how to support children and young people through bereavement, including pre-school children who are best supported by their own family. We can also offer advice and support to schools in the event of a sudden death in the school community. We also offer training packages, tailored to the needs of individual schools. We participate in university research initiatives to improve counselling of bereaved children and young people. Find more information on this on our Advice and Help pages

All that we do is only possible through the massive support we receive from you and people like you. To allow us to continue this great work, we need more of your help. Touchstones cannot support our local children and young people without you supporting us. We are determined to be here for them, but we need you to help raise money to make this possible. Please ring us on 07547 367267 or email us to chat about how you could help, and look at our Support Us fund raising page to see what has been going on, what is coming up and what you can do to help us!
