How this cause brings people in the community together

We will provide support for the transition from primary to secondary school, working with staff to ensure they are aware of circumstances, including key dates (anniversaries, birthdays etc), to reduce the likelihood of negative outcomes. Bereaved children are particularly vulnerable to being bullied and to school exclusion. Group and peer support work are also key for successful outcomes.
