We believe that unresolved grief should not inhibit children from achieving the best they can in life. We aim to help the child, their family and other professionals working in their care to understand the impact of grief and how they can best support them moving forward in their lives and for a better future.

We offer support to children and young people aged 4–17 years and their families, who live in the London Borough of Hillingdon. This service is available to those who have experienced bereavement or have someone close to them with a life-limiting illness.

  • Individual art therapy sessions
  • Group art therapy
  • End of life support
  • Family sessions
  • Parent support groups
  • Advice for families & professionals
  • Online art therapy sessions
  • Memorial events & creative workshops


Every child and family is different and our therapists will find the right approach to help with your child’s or family’s needs. We are an inclusive service, respectful of religious, cultural, spiritual grieving traditions and rituals.



How much does it cost?

This service is free for children and families living in the London borough of Hillingdon.


Where Do Sessions Take Place?

We provide therapy sessions in the North and South of Hillingdon borough (at Harlington Hospice: St Peters Way, Hayes, UB3 5AB and Michael Sobel Hospice: Mount Vernon Hospice, Northwood, HA6 2RN).

Protective measures have been put in place in response to Covid-19, current guidance is sent before sessions start and we ask parents and young people to read through carefully before coming to the building.

Alternatively, we provide therapy sessions online for young people and families who are unable to come to the hospice, for those who are isolating and for young people who may prefer this method of communication. Telephone support is also available for parents and young people.
