Mindcraft workshops are returning in November following a successful pilot


Following the success of Peace Hospice Care'e child bereavement workshops, Mindcraft, in March, we are running them again in November.

Funded by The Graham Rowlandson Foundation, Mindcraft is a series of arts and crafts workshops, designed for children aged 5-16 who have experienced loss of a significant loved one. The sessions enable expression and provide coping mechanisms and are also open to the children's parents or carers.

Martin Bertram, who took part in the March pilot with his two children, said:"These days are very beneficial to all three of us. This is a great opportunity for my daughters to join in with the other children and myself to gather some ideas from the other parents and carers.

Jo Marovitch, who manages day services at Peace Hospice Care, said:"Mindcraft offers a unique experience where bereaved children and carers can explore their grief in a relaxed atmosphere and feel understood. How children and young people cope with losing a loved varies hugely with age and so our workshops provide help and support but also practical coping techniques for them and their carers after the workshops are over.
