Raising funds and awareness to help bereaved children

Our quiz teams enjoyed friendly banter and nurtured their competitive spirit in our quiz, raising more than £560 for Footsteps who provide free of charge support for bereaved children, young people and their families in Worcestershire following the death of a parent, sibling or other significant person in their life.

The virtual quiz was won by the ‘Court in the Act’ team.

The charity guides and supports bereaved children and young people, helping them to manage their grief.

Why we support Footsteps

Research has shown that in this country a child is bereaved of a parent every thirty minutes. Each year, there are an estimated 400 children and young people living in Worcestershire who are affected by the death of a significant person in their lives.

Individuals within a bereaved family frequently try to “protect” one another during their grief – a bereaved child will try not to show that he is upset for fear of upsetting Mummy further because he knows she is already distressed. Mummy will endeavour to hide her grief for fear of upsetting her son further because she knows he is already distressed.

This situation can lead to a “bottling up” of grief, which in itself can lead to problems later in life if it is not dealt with at the appropriate time.

Footsteps, which is an independent charity, enables children and young people to:

  • Be able to talk about the person who has died
  • Ask questions
  • Express their feelings
  • Have their fears and worries accepted.
