Together, we can empower future generations

We are looking for participants in our series of free co-design workshops aimed at educators, ITE and BA Childhood and Youth students.

These workshops aim to enable us to collaborate with you to co-create grief education and bereavement support resources that will help you to help the children and young people you are supporting.

Our co-design sessions run for 90-minutes, are free of charge and can be delivered online or in-person.

What to expect

Our co-design workshops are dynamic, interactive and supportive.

Open discussion

Opportunities to participate in engaging discussions with your peers that will help our researchers gather insights so they can tailor training to meet your needs.

Guidance and support

Our team will use the insights from the co-design workshop and work with grief experts and experienced grief education specialists to create a bespoke follow-up training session.

Get creative

You'll take part in hands-on creative activities to generate innovative ideas with the support of our researchers and designers, and make an impact.

Create a ripple effect

By joining our co-design workshops, you become an integral part of a transformative movement.


Together, we will make a lasting difference to the lives of children and young people that experience loss and grief.

Educators and youth workers are uniquely placed to offer support

Children and young people spend most of their waking hours at school and are uniquely positioned to be able to observe behaviour changes and identify when a child or young person that has experienced a loss needs additional support.

First Responders

Teachers and youth workers are often the first to observe changes in a young person's behaviour. They have the opportunity to recognise signs of grief-related isolation and intervene early.

Creating safe spaces

Educational & community spaces play a huge role in the daily lives of young people. When teachers and youth workers are educated about grief, they can create a safe and inclusive space where young people feel comfortable discussing their feelings and experiences around all types of loss - not just bereavement.

Building trust

Grieving young people may find it challenging to open up to friends and family. This could be for reasons like not wanting to be a burden on their grieving loved ones, or fear of judgement. Teachers and youth workers can serve as trusted adults who listen without judgement, providing a vital outlet for expression.

What our participants say

"A fantastic and essential experience, doing wonderful work in emotional education and breaking down the taboo of death. This is exactly what I was looking for when I worked with a bereft child."
