Supporting Bereaved Children During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Daily Update 30 April

The outbreak of COVID-19 means that many aspects of children’s lives are changing. School is closed for most, lots of parents are working from home, and families are having to spend time apart when they would like to be together. The news is full of talk of the virus and the effect it is having.


Many children will have questions and worries about the virus, but those who have experienced the death of someone important or who have an ill family member might be particularly worried.
