Bereaved children, young people and adults need your support.

If you are bereaved and have reached out for help, you will know that there are very few services for adults or for children that offer therapeutic support.

In the majority of cases, bereavement is not supported through NHS mental health services. It is excluded from Child Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and from the Improved Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) pathways for adults.

It is left to charities, like Listening Ear, to try to help people who are not recovering from the effects of bereavement. We ensure that they can access support they need at this difficult time.

This is Listening Ear's first appeal for donations. Please give what you can and help us to make our bereavement counselling services more accessible to more people who need our help.
