Mindcraft Bereavement workshops are to return in October 2019

After the success of our Mindcraft workshops in March 2019, we will be running them again in October this year. These are weekly sessions which run on consecutive Saturdays from 12th October - 2nd November from 10am-12:30pm.

The workshops are an opportunity for bereaved children aged 5 -16 to meet and express themselves through creative activity and play.

 

The children will be placed in age appropriate groups and take part in a new and interesting art activity each week, exploring their idea of loss and celebrating life. Each session is a chance to interact with other children who have experienced bereavement, learn new skills and be supported by trained volunteers.We also run informal parent/carer sessions alongside to support the adults.

 

In the run-up to the workshops, we are hosting an Information Drop-In Morning on 21st September from 10am–12pm in the Starlight Lounge at the Hospice. This is an informal session where those interested in October's Mindcraft sessions can meet us, ask questions and sign up, or, be signposted to further information and support. You do not need to attend this session to attend the workshops.

 

If you are interested in Mindcraft, or would like more information about the sessions or the information morning, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at: starlight@peacehospicecare.org.uk,or by telephone on: 01923 330 332.
