SeeSaw provides support for children, young people and their families in Oxfordshire when they have been bereaved or when somebody close to them is terminally ill.
Through appropriate and timely support, SeeSaw can help to reduce the emotional, psychological and mental health consequences of grief.
Young people are then able to face the future with hope.
Covid-19 Service Update
From 19th July the UK government has relaxed many of the compulsory restrictions relating to Covid-19, including the wearing of masks, restrictions on meetings sizes, and social distancing. The advice does, however, suggest ‘cautious guidance for individuals, businesses and the vulnerable whilst prevalence is high’. Due to the nature of our work which involves face to face meetings with families in their own homes, sometimes meeting with families who are shielding due to underlying health conditions, we have decided to adopt a cautious approach. In particular, we are aware that locally Oxford City has been identified as an enhanced response area due to higher numbers of new Covid-19 cases. Because of this it may mean that we offer families an online video call, or phone call, or we offer to do an outdoor visit. We want to keep families and our staff safe and ensure that pressure on the NHS is eased.
‘I am very pleased to introduce SeeSaw’s impact report. 2020 was a year of real sadness and challenge but we have also accomplished so much. Our building project is complete, we have found new ways to support young people and their families, and we have gained new supporters. 2021 sees exciting plans for our clinical service and the organisation.’
