COPE Peer bereavement support project is a therapeutic support programme which focuses on helping young people (12-17) who have experienced a sudden loss of a loved one understand, process and cope with their bereavement.
Our project is delivered by highly skilled individuals staff an integrative psychotherapist and a wellbeing practitioner..
Each project lasts for 6-8 weeks and sessions are usually around 1 hour and 30 minutes.
We deliver the programme in schools and on our own premises depending on demand and levels of need.
The programme also focuses on empowering young people to use their lived experience to support other young people experiencing bereavement further down the line.
We call it COPE because everyone copes in their own way and deals with their thoughts, feelings and emotions similarly. We want to help young people find their own grief and loss processes and offer them the support, knowledge and skills to not only look after themselves but also others.
