Child Bereavement UK conference Edinburgh 4th March 2015

I was honoured to have been asked to speak at the Child Bereavement UK conference “Getting Bereavement Right for Every Child” in Edinburgh this week. It was a great day, and wonderful to see so many people involved. Amongst other speakers, we got to listen to the amazing young person Jack McIntyre, who shared his story of his bereavement and the importance of the support he received. He moved the room. I also just got some feedback from my talk, which I would like to share with you: “5*. Touching, honest, therapeutic” – “Excellent speaker. Thought provoking and interesting to hear from a parent perspective” – “Very well presented and inspiring. Fantastic resource for children” – “Absolutely amazing” – “Very emotive day. So taken with Elke’s story, book and her sincerity and honesty” – THANK YOU ALL! I hope to be able to continue telling our story and supporting very young bereaved children. xxx
