Bereaved Children’s Awareness Week 2020

Every November, 23-27th Nov 2020 the Irish Childhood Bereavement Network (ICBN) organises a series of events across Ireland to highlight bereaved children’s needs and provide a voice for them to be heard.

Bereaved Children’s Awareness Week  is to help raise awareness of the fact that children express grief differently; they feel the impact but may not have words to express it so it often shows in their behaviour.

 

We are asking the adults to help bereaved children find their way to express grief by:

  • Understanding what to expect from children and young people
  • Having open and honest conversations
  • Being patient and compassionate
  • Acknowledge their feelings and respect choice and difference
