A SEMINAR for professionals working with suddenly bereaved children and young people is to be held in West Yorkshire this summer.
The event, supporting suddenly bereaved children and young people, is organised by Sudden, a charitable initiative by Huddersfield-based Brake, the road safety charity, which helps people who have been bereaved by a sudden death.
It takes place on Tuesday, July 12, and is aimed at anyone caring for children and young people, such as teachers, health professionals, police, child carers and bereavement support workers.
Confirmed speakers include Sue McDermott, acting national director for Rainbows GB, who will provide advice about supporting suddenly bereaved children and young people in an education setting, and Angela Trinder, chairperson of Bereavement Training North West, who will suggest ways of working with the family unit to provide support.
A case study session will involve a bereaved individual speaking about their personal experiences and providing an insight into the impact of a sudden death on a family, children and young people.

The event takes place at Bishopgarth Police Training Centre in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
