Child and Family Bereavement Referral Form

Gaddum CFBS provides a needs-led therapeutic service for Manchester and Salford children and families, as they begin to explore their unique process of adjustment following bereavement.

'Our Specialist trained therapists will conduct and assessment with the family after which the most suitable intervention will be offered, in line with the natural grieving process. Where the child/young person is not ready to engage in structured therapy we will offer guidance and information to the family, as to enable them to support the child/young person through this time.

Where it is assessed that structured therapy is the most helpful option for the child/young person, weekly sessions will be offered at school or at out base in Manchester. Children and young people often find it difficult to speak directly about their thoughts and feelings, and so plat is often used as an effective communication tool to facilitate symbolic expression and appear less threatening. Our therapeutic interventions usually last up to 12 weeks.

We accept referral from any source (e.g. self/professional/parents/school), provided that the child/young person is registered with a GP in Manchester or Salford, and is between 5 and 18 years old. It is important that they child/young person would like to, and consents, to this referral, as we would be unable to do the necessary therapeutic work if they are not at a place where they can engage with out therapists.
