ECLIPSE Child Bereavement Service was established in 2008 in Stafford to serve the town and local areas.

The service seeks to support children and young people aged between 5-18 years of age who have suffered the loss, through bereavement,* of someone significant.

This service is FREE which includes the resources we use. We usually work through schools and require parental consent. There is no fixed length of time that we work with a youngster. It will depend on many factors since each bereavement is viewed as unique. You may wish to take a look at our view on bereavement through the following link.

We work largely through the medium of a memory book and undertake various therapeutic activities, sometimes in a group setting if children feel comfortable doing so.

If you think our service may be able to help you and you wish to refer a child then please follow the link.

*Whilst we readily acknowledge that there are many forms of loss which can have a life-changing affect on children, we regret that we are only able to support those who have experienced loss through bereavement.
