CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) SERVICE UPDATE

Following announcements yesterday by the Prime Minister, and in line with current Public Health concern at the rising number of confirmed Covid-19 cases, we will be suspending all home visits and face to face services to families from Thursday 24th September.

We will regularly review our clinical service in line with government and public health advice to ensure what we can offer is safe. We will continue to offer phone and email support to families and professionals, as well as our online training packages for schools.

If you would like to talk to someone about support for a bereaved child, or request our remote training modules, please contact us in the first instance by emailing us at info@seesaw.org.uk and including a contact number. Our team will then contact you by phone or email to discuss how we may be able to offer support. 

For fundraising enquiries please email our fundraising team at fundraiser@seesaw.org.uk 

This new website is still under construction but over the next few weeks we will be adding clinical content including information advice and resources. In the meantime, we are regularly posting on our social media sites which you can follow through the links at the bottom of the page. 

Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We hope you continue to stay safe and well. 

All about SeeSaw

SeeSaw provides grief support for children, young people and their families in Oxfordshire.  Through appropriate and timely support, SeeSaw can help to reduce the emotional, psychological and mental health consequences of bereavement.  Young people are then able to face the future with hope.

SeeSaw offers:

  • Telephone consultations to any parent or professional who is concerned about a bereaved child.
  • Home visits to families to assess their needs and talk about ways in which SeeSaw might be able to help.
  • Tailored individual support for children and young people when needed. This often involves one-to-one sessions with a support worker and takes place where the child is most comfortable – in their own home.
  • Specialist support to families and professionals when a parent or sibling is dying.
  • Family events and activity days which enable children, young people and their families to meet together in a fun and relaxed way.
  • Information and training to school staff when they are supporting a bereaved child in the classroom or managing a death in the school community.
  • Training, consultancy and resources to professionals working with bereaved children and young people.
