Charity of the Year

Holding On Letting Go

Holding On Letting Go is a Kent-based charity that helps children cope with the death of someone close to them.
Since the adults around them are also grieving, these children often feel unable to express their feelings or talk about their loved one or their sadness.
Many adults don’t know how to support children through the grieving process, so the charity gives support and guidance to parents and carers too. They offer non residential therapeutic weekends, support for parents, telephone and email support and advice and training to professionals working with bereaved children and young adults.
120 children attended bereavement weekends and a further 60 families were supported by the charity in other ways.
For the year ending 31/3/17:
Income – £104,000
Spending – £76,000
