Cardiff and the Vale children and young people's forum launch event

Cruse Bereavement Care Cymru is delighted to officially launch the Cardiff and Vale multi Agency Forum as part of the Cruse Children & Young Peoples programme in Wales. The launch event took place on Tuesday 12th May 2015 at the Pierhead, Cardiff Bay.

The Forum, which was established in March 2013, brings together cross sector organisations that provide bereavement services or have an interest in bereavement services that are being provided to children and young people across Cardiff and the Vale. The forum meets quarterly to share amongst other things; best practices, referral and signposting opportunities and training opportunities and has created a directory of bereavement services Cruse Bereavement Care provides bereavement support to more children and young people than any other child bereavement charity.

Laura Gregory, CYP officer for Cruse Cymru says: “The Forum shares best practice, raises awareness, enables capacity building of services, raises understanding of each other’s support services and availability and assists with effective signposting of referrals between organisations. The excellent collaboration between organisations is ensuring that more Children and Young People receive the bereavement support that they need.”

As one of its first projects, the forum has produced a directory which provides information about the services available to bereaved Children and Young People in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. Find out more and download the directory.
