Be­reave­ment char­ity’s new home

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Front Page -

A CHAR­ITY sup­port­ing be­reaved chil­dren and fam­i­lies in the North West has moved to Widnes from Run­corn.

Child Be­reave­ment UK was based on High Street in Run­corn, but from Oc­to­ber 1 now has its of­fices at Ash­ley House on Ash­ley Way in Widnes.

The ser­vice of­fers faceto-face sup­port and groups where chil­dren can meet other be­reaved young­sters with their adult car­ers.

Young peo­ple aged 11-25 can also meet in a sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment in which they can work to­gether on projects to help oth­ers who are griev­ing, based on their own ex­pe­ri­ences.

Se­bas­tian Far­rell, the char­ity’s se­nior fundrais­ing man­ager for the North, said: “Since the Cheshire ser­vice was es­tab­lished four years ago, it has grown sig­nifi- cantly.

“We’ve gone from sup­port­ing 74 fam­i­lies each year to over 250.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to sup­port­ing many more fam­i­lies across Hal­ton, as well as the whole North West re­gion, from our new base in Widnes.”
