Professionals working with children often need specific advice about how to support bereaved children and how to explain to other children that another child has been bereaved.

We are now CAF compliant

We now require a CAF at the point of referral to help give us an overview of the child/young person and their circumstances and to let us know who else is working with the child. Please assist us in speeding up the referral process by completing a CAF.

How to help a grieving child

STARS can offer advice over the telephone and can guide Professionals to resources they may find helpful.

Telephone calls are answered by the administrator who will either send out a referral form or offer a telephone slot with the bereavement counsellor where appropriate.
