Grieving is about remembering not forgetting

'The true way to mourn the dead is to take care of the living who belong to them.'

Jenni Thomas OBE

The ALMT offers support to families with children who are coping with grief when someone important in their lives has suddenly and unexpectedly died or where a parent is dying. Support is provided by an experienced support team led by Jenni Thomas who was awarded the OBE for her pioneering bereavement work in Britain.

The team focuses on the needs of families with children and young people facing loss and grief. The involvement of the parents or prime carer is essential.
Grief is a normal reaction to loss and death. The grief parents experience when a child dies is a normal reaction to an unnatural event. Children experiencing grief when a parent dies is again a normal reaction but to an unnatural event. Understanding behaviour can help at a deeply anxious and stressful time.

Grief resembles fear and feelings of anxiety and loss of control can make life particularly difficult to manage.
