Well done to our new volunteers!!

Well done to our new volunteers at HALO Mel and Amanda for having both completed their safeguarding adult and children courses with the London Borough of Hillingdon LSCB. Excuse the filters. We have a Volunteers theme going on...  23rd May 2019

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.
