Bringing back Smiles
Nelson’s Journey is a charity that supports children and young people aged 0 – 17 years inclusive, living in Norfolk, who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life. Their vision is to give every bereaved child in Norfolk the support they need to move forward positively with their lives, never having to cope with their loss alone. They know offering the right help at the right time gives them the best chance of avoiding long-term mental and emotional health issues, which can lead to educational problems, drug and alcohol abuse and law-breaking.
The range of group interventions offered include: therapeutic weekends, activity days, youth-group-style clubs, and events such as their annual Memorial Walk. They bring children together to meet others who have been through similar experiences, give them the opportunity to remember the person who died and provide them with a range of coping mechanisms to deal with their difficult emotions. With your continued support and generous donations Nelson’s Journey are able to provide training to professionals and continue supporting the bereavement needs of children.
