We presented Star Bereavement with a cheque from our small grants round for £16,802.
Star Bereavement are a Wakefield charity who provide bereavement support services to children and young people who live within the region. The charity give children the help they need to rebuild their lives when someone important has died.
We asked Star Bereavement what it means to get this grant from us.
“The money we’ve received enables us to fund another practitioner and take the pressure off the team with the growing number of referrals we’ve had. It also allows us to carry on addressing the taboo around grief and bereavement, as we’re the only support group for 0-25 year olds in the Wakefield District”.
Working with amazing charities like this one is why we do what we do and hearing the incredible stories makes it all worthwhile!
