Yo-yo – Children’s Bereavement Service


The Yo-Yo Project is a service for children and young people aged 4 to 18 who are either facing the loss of someone significant or have been bereaved. The service is open to any child/young person who lives in the mid-Essex area (Chelmsford, Maldon and Braintree districts). The service offers a range of support including one to one support, counselling and group activities and is based at Farleigh Hospice but works mostly in the community. We offer information, guidance and advice to parents/carers and professionals. We work with children/young people using a range of age appropriate activities including art based activities, talking therapy etc. Some of our groups are for families, others for children/young people only such as our outdoor activity days. We also provide workshops for school staff in how to support bereaved children/young people.
