FiG was set up in 2006 by a group of bereaved parents and adults experienced in working with children.
Our aim is to support children, young people and their families living in North Devon and Torridge who are coming to terms with the death of someone close to them.
Support is provided by running a series of groups throughout the year which bring a number of bereaved families together to help them with their grief. We feel that meeting together in this way will open up communication within the family, reduce their sense of isolation and help to understand and normalize their feelings by meeting others who are experiencing similar situations.
We also run groups for bereaved teenagers which introduces them to other young people who are facing similar challenges. The sessions involve physical activities such as the climbing wall and numerous craft activities.
