Which Child Could You Live Without?

I don't have any other children but I have spent enough time with parents who do to know how much this phrase hurts them. Take a moment to ask yourself if you could live without any of your children. No child makes the loss of another child any better

Sibling Support

“Sometimes the brothers and sisters are forgotten about and they are grieving as well”.

As part of child grief awareness week, Brightest Star is providing an information evening/workshop for parents/grandparents/carers of children/young people who have lost a sibling.
This will give you an opportunity to look at some practical strategies that you could do with the child/young person at home to support them with their grief. We can only take a maximum of 12 and this will be... on a 1st come, first served basis.
To reserve you place, you need to send an email with your name, contact number and the age of child that you are supporting to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
If you would like to attend this session, it is on Wed 23rd November 6-8.30 pm

If you are considering bringing your child to Brightest Star for one to one support, this will also give you an idea of the work we would be doing with them. I can’t thank Toni and Austin enough for sharing their experience of grief and Brightest Stars sibling support with us, this was such a brave thing to do and thanks to you, I am very sure Brightest Star will be able to support many more young people after the loss of their brother or sister.

Support Groups!

Have you lost a child or know someone who has lost a child?

Our support groups are open to people who have lost a child at any age, from any cause of death and our last support groups for 2016 are:

GLASGOW...
Monday 5th December 2016 - Level 3, Glasgow Hilton, William Street, 1800-2000

EDINBURGH
Wednesday 7th December Radisson Blue, The Royal Mile, 1800-2000

I am looking to expand our groups in 2016 and I currently looking for areas that people would like to see Brightest Star groups running and also counsellors in those areas. We already have them in Glasgow and Edinburgh so I'm looking at other cities out with this.
If you would like to see a group in your area or you have experience in counselling, please get in touch.
