Resources to support families affected by the crisis in Ukraine

The devastating events in Ukraine are painful and disturbing. The UK is preparing to welcome children and families fleeing their homes, many of whom will have been bereaved in traumatic circumstances, and bereavement services will have an important role to play in supporting them in the weeks and months to come. News coverage and discussion of the war can spark empathy and fear in the wider community of children and young people, and may reawaken their own griefs. Parents and services will be looking for ways to reassure them.
