Bereavement Support for Children and Young People

Release is especially for children, young people and their families who have experienced the death of a loved one. This service is based at and funded by Nightingale House Hospice.

Who are we?

We are a small team and have worked with lots of bereaved children and young people, and their families.

What do we do?

We aim to give you help and support up to and following the death of someone close to you. The person may have died recently or a long time ago.

We can do this in various ways

We can see you on your own, with your brothers and sisters or as a family. We also hold group sessions where you can meet with other young people who have been bereaved. We know that it can be difficult to ask for help but please call us.

Grief is normal

Children and young people may feel many emotions over a long period of time.

Some of these feelings may be:

✿ Sadness
✿ Confusion
✿ Loneliness
✿ Anger
✿ Fear
✿ Guilt

Remember, these are normal feelings but talking to someone about how you feel may help.

Nightingale House Hospice is a registered charity; we are not part of the NHS. We provide our services free of charge to all patients. It costs around £3 Million to run the Hospice each year which equates to nearly £8,000 per day. We only receive around 22% of our running costs from the Welsh Assembly Government and the Health Board. To ensure the Hospice keeps running we need to fund the remaining 78% from our own fundraising activities which includes support from our local community and gifts from peoples Wills.

How to find us

We are based on Chester Road in Wrexham. Whilst we attempt to provide car parking space for our patients and their visitors, from time to time our car park is full. On these occasions we kindly ask that you do not double park/park on double yellow lines (even if you have a disabled badge) as this restricts access for ambulances/emergency vehicles and deliveries.

There is street parking available within a short distance of the Hospice.
