We at HALO aim to provide advice, information and hope to those dealing with the loss of a loved one.

We hold a monthly group of expressive arts and play on a Saturday, where children can mix, play and develop in a safe and stimulating environment amoungst others going through similar loss and grief.

HALO aims to provide relief from the effects of bereavement to children up to 18 years old who have suffered the loss of someone close to them, this could include, a parent, grandparent, sibling or even a close friend who is now missing from their life.

The charity knows that it can never make up for the loss of a love one but it hopes to be able to help children smile again and hold on to memories they have.
