Candle: Children, Young People and Loss
St Christopher’s has been providing bereavement counselling to patients’ families for over 50 years.
St Christopher’s Candle Child Bereavement Service extends this support to all children, young people and their families in the south east London area, covering the boroughs of Croydon, Bromley, Lewisham, Southwark and Lambeth. Any parent, carer, teacher or healthcare professional can make a referral to the Candle Child Bereavement Service. Young people aged over 16 can refer themselves.
We also offer a specialist training, advice and consultancy service to schools and other agencies working with children facing bereavement.
