LiFE Residential changes their logo in support of Grief Encounter
Updated on: Nov. 15, 2019, 10:14 a.m.
Grief Encounter, one of LiFE’s chosen charities, is the UK’s leading childhood bereavement charity, supporting children, young people and their families following the death of a parent or sibling.
As part of their campaign and through our continued support of Grief Encounter, LiFE will drop the letter ‘i’ from our logo throughout Children's Grief Awareness Week (CGAW) which takes places between 15th – 21st November. According to Grief Encounter, this represents the missing person in our lives, and how, although they are gone, life can still make sense, guided with the help of Grief Encounter's clinical support.
LiFE Residential's Managing Director Jonathan Werth spoke about the importance of this initiative.
"We've been involved with Grief Encounter for a number of years and we love the initiative to drop the i and try in some way to raise its awareness."
"We feel it provokes questions and therefore answers, and anything we can do to publicise this crucial charity is really an obligation for us all," said Werth.
To coincide with CGAW, Grief Encounter have launched 'grieftalk' - a brand new confidential helpline available for children, young people and adults. Grieftalk can be accessed by telephone or instant chat with trained professionals, 5 days a week from 9 am - 9 pm. You can find ore information on 'grieftalk' here.
Children’s Grief Awareness Week (CGAW) was founded by Grief Encounter and is designed to raise awareness of bereaved children and young people in the UK, shining a light on what can be quite a dark time in their lives. Now in its fourth year, CGAW runs every November and is a chance for us to come together and show support for bereaved children across the UK.
