Loss is a part of life.

But we don't talk about it

The Firefly Project aims to tackle the taboos that prevent us from talking about loss and open up the conversation by bringing proactive grief education to the classroom.

We are here to cultivate a more compassionate world where no child or young person feels alone in their grief.

What we do

We offer a holistic approach to grief education by offering a range of services that cater to the diverse needs of children, young people and those supporting them.

Young voices are at the heart of what we do

"People should just talk about it, and not feel awkward. It's one of the things we all have in common. Not only do you have to deal with grief yourself, you also have to deal with how others might feel about it."

Teigan, 20

Firefly Youth advocate, bereaved at 11
