Bereavement Boxes

Our project placed boxes of resources with the Guidance Staff in 11 Secondary Schools, and also in the 25 larger Primary Schools, with smaller bereavement files in all other primary schools.  We also placed 40 boxes in community centres, Community Learning Bases and with voluntary organisations.

The content of these boxes included an action card to guide schools in the event of a death in school, leaflets, booklets and books including:
