Help us to help bereaved young people back on their feet

Slide Away receives in excess of 100 referrals every year from primary and secondary schools in West Kent for support for bereaved pupils and those living with a family member with a terminal illness. We offer all of these referrals a place at either a 2-day workshop, a memory day or support through our monthly pre-bereavement group. If you are an individual, group, school or business please consider supporting our work.  For further information please contact Denise Ross on 07970 597715 or at

Where does your donation go?

for a friendship band made with coloured thread, each colour picked to remind children and young people of the special people who are there for them on a difficult day.
for a memory jar full of coloured salt, each colour representing a special memory.
for a kite to decorate and fly in memory of their special person at Slide Away’s Kite flying in memory of event.
for a memory box and decorations that children can make to keep safe mementoes of their special person.
for books to give to children and young people. The books have special messages in them, for example reassuring young people that they are not alone or that their special person can live on with them in their heart and in their memories.
for Slide Away to run additional therapeutic days.

These amounts are approximations but we hope it will give you an idea of where your money will go and how important it is.
