STRIDE INFORMATION LEAFLET
LAUNCH OF THE STRIDE (CHILDREN’S BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT) SERVICE
The formal launch of the STRIDE, Children and Young Person’s Bereavement Support Service took place on 25 June 2014 at Vincent’s Restaurant, Preston’s College. The event was really well attended – over 70 people were there during the afternoon / evening. The service offers much needed support for children and young people who have experienced a bereavement and after operating for some time it felt like we were ready for a formal launch to raise the profile of the service.
Sally Proctor, who heads up the service said “I am delighted that we are able to formally launch the service. We are extremely grateful to both our Trustees for supporting the STRIDE service and our supporters, notably Stella Humphries and the Team at HSBC, Fishergate Preston who have been keen supporters and helped with in-branch and other fundraising activities.”
The Stride team have been busy delivering training with the Healthy Schools Team at Lancashire County Council and also talking to Lancashire Constabulary.
