Our Projects

children decorating memory boxesFamilies in Grief (FiG ) run groups approximately four or five times a year, depending on how many families and young people have contacted us. In the children’s groups we like to have at least five families. In the young people’s group we like to have at least five young people.

Once you have made contact with us, someone from FiG will come and visit you at home to tell you more about what we can offer.

If you then decide that you would like to come to one of the groups, we will let you know when and where the next available one is being held.

The children’s group runs for six weeks, one evening a week, generally on a Monday from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. The young people’s group runs for eight weeks, one evening a week, generally on a Wednesday from 6:30pm – 8:00pm.

The children’s groups are held  in Bideford and Barnstaple, but if there are a large number of families from one particular area we will try and find a suitable venue nearer to that area. The young people’s group is held at The Yard in Braunton.

Anyone can refer a child providing that they have the family’s agreement.

There is no charge for attending one of the projects.
