Take our hand

Helping young people through bereavement…

Our Mission

At Take Our Hand we understand how difficult it is to be a young person, so when you add a bereavement to the mix it can have a detrimental effect on them, their lives and those closest to them.

This is why at Take Our Hand we want to help young people across England who are going through a bereavement. We believe that all bereavements have an impact on someone’s life, be it a parent, friend or colleague, they are all hard to deal with.

How We Can Help

Bereavement Care Packages

Our care packages provide practical support and home comforts to help you navigate your way forward with your grief.

Therapies & Activities

We understand that no two people experience grief in the same way which is why we work with individuals to find the best therapy or activity to suit their needs.


We are happy to accept referral for any young person aged 16-25 who lives in England. Referrals can be made by the individual or on their behalf.

Get Involved

We couldn’t do our work without the support from generous people and organisations who believe like us that our work is important.

There are loads of ways you can support us. You could join our team of wonderful volunteers who ensure our crucial work can take place, you can take part in an event to fundraise for us, or make a donation.

We are also always looking for organisations who want to partner with us to either fundraise, help with volunteering or by providing items for our care packages.

All help from individuals and organisations is greatly appreciated.
