GCBN offer a range of Activity Days throughout the Grampian Region. The aim of these days is to bring children and young people together to have some fun, build confidence and feel less isolated.
We know that often bereaved children and young people often feel very isolated, as they may not know another bereaved child or young person. Children and Young people do not have to talk about their loss, unless they wish to.
Parents or Carers need to accompany their child, arrangements are in place so that the adults can meet others and enjoy a chat over a cuppa. Having the adults remain, provides the child with a sense of reassurance especially if they are struggling to with anxiety.
Activity Days offer a range of fun activities, from tubing, to our Easter and Christmas Keeping memories safe crafts.
GCBN volunteers and trustees attend the event and are on hand to support both children and adults. They are available to have a chat with parents if they feel they need some advice or support about their child.
The Activity Days are free to attend, and all craft materials are provided free of charge. Some children attend all of the events while others only choose to attend particular days. It is whatever suits the individual family.
To register for a place families need to email or phone to ensure that we know who is attending. We realise how hard it is for families who attend for the first time, therefore efforts are made to make contact with them by phone so they have a named person.
