The Saying Goodbye Project is part of Kingston Bereavement Service, a registered charity based in Kingston upon Thames which offers support, counselling and understanding through bereavement for children, young people and adults.

The Saying Goodbye Project was launched in 2007, and supports children and young people who have been bereaved of someone significant to them, and who live or study in the borough of Kingston upon Thames.

We are able to offer the following services:

  • One to one bereavement counselling and support for children and young people
  • Information and advice for children and young people, their parents and carers
  • Information, advice and consultancy for teachers, social workers, health service staff, and other professional and social groups who work with children and young people.


Supporting children and young people returning to school

If you are a parent or carer, or work in a school, and would like some advice on supporting children and young people as they return to school, and how this may especially impact on them if they are bereaved, some useful information provided by Winston's Wish, a national bereavement organisation can be found here   


Are you moving up to secondary school in September?

This can be a challenging time, especially with the restrictions that were imposed during lockdown, you may not have had the opportunity to prepare in the usual way.

We have some tips here, which may help you as you make that move in the new term. If you would like some help around this - please do get in touch 




     To find out about the impact the Coronavirus is having on our service for children, young people

     and their families, and for information about providing and accessing support, please see
