Slide Away

Charity description

Slide Away logo
Slide Away provides support for children and young people in the West Kent area, who have been bereaved of a relative or friend.

Bereaved children and young people have told us that, following the death of someone important to them, they sometimes feel anger, grief, numbness, relief, fear, confusion, despair, shock, denial, sadness, anxiety, depression, guilt. Slide Away offers two-day therapeutic workshops, which enable children to explore and express their emotions, to find ways of coping with their grief and to help them start the process of moving on through creative activities. Slide Away take all referrals through schools and we maintain a network of volunteer School Bereavement Contacts in the Maidstone, Tonbridge and Malling areas, all of whom are given awareness training to give them the confidence to support a bereaved pupil and make contact with their family.
