Berevement Awareness in Education – An Online Petition

People have asked how they can support the initiative to see Bereavement Awareness taught compulsory through the National Curriculum throughout schools in the U.K.

Now you can with this Parliament petition.

A parent of children under 18 dies every 22 minutes in the UK, this is around 111 children being bereaved of a parent every single day – this does not include other members of a family such as Grandparents and siblings.
The outcome of this being approved will result in that child knowing they are not on their own with their grief. It will help school friends understand what their friend is going through, instilling more empathy and compassion. It will also help teachers in providing tools and signposting in knowing how to support their students and wider communities.
It is our belief; this will also help our wider relationship with death and provide clarity in exploring the feelings that are associated when we suffer a loss. Finally, resulting in a more positive way of living!
Please sign and share this Parliament petition in your communities and let’s make a difference for future generations.
