Like adults, children affected by road death and injury need loving support and information. It is often better to tell children things through honest discussion and involve them in decision making rather than keep them in the dark and leave them excluded in an effort to protect them from the truth.
You can also visit our site www.amyandtom.org which provides advice for carers of children bereaved by any sudden cause.
If you are a professional caring for suddenly bereaved children, you may also wish to attend one of our regional seminars on sudden child bereavement. These are particularly suitable for teachers, club leaders, social workers, counsellors and health professionals. Go to our site www.suddendeath.org and click the professionals button for details of forthcoming dates and venues.
