Oxfordshire children’s charity SeeSaw supports children and young people who need extra support coming to terms with the death of a mum, dad, sister or brother. National statistics indicate that in the UK 1 in 25 young people under 16 years old suffer the death of a parent and many can experience severe difficulties needing extra support. Without expert support at this critical time, these young people can face emotional problems in later life.
SeeSaw’s fully trained Volunteer Support Workers give support, expertise and time for free and several members of the small core staff are part time, so the cost of providing this vital service is kept to a minimum.
It costs around £350,000 a year for SeeSaw to provide a comprehensive service to the whole of Oxfordshire, offering tailored one-to-one grief support for children and young people, group/family activity days, advice and support to families, advice and training to professionals, literature and resources.
SeeSaw relies on donations from the local community, the corporate sector and charitable bodies in order keep its vital service going and has helped over 5300 children since it began in the year 2000.
