Farleigh Hospice - Yo-Yo Project: Support for Children & Young People.  

Yo-Yo is a community bereavement service for children and young people aged 4 to 18.

The service is partly funded by Children in Need.

We offer a range of support options including:

  • 1 to 1 support
  • Counselling
  • Music, Art and Play Therapy


Group work:

  • Bespoke groups - children and families are invited to attend sessions which support specific needs including:
    • Outdoor activity days
    • Art gallery
    • Family meal
    • Christmas party
    • Memorial service
    • Workshops for parents and carers to understand the impact of loss and bereavement and how to support their child/young person


Our team also holds workshops for school staff and other agencies working with children to share techniques and strategies to support bereaved children, their families and their community.

Referrals are accepted when someone significant to a child/young person has a life-limiting illness.

Bereavement referrals are accepted from 6 weeks after the death. Professionals and parents can refer with the consent of the child/young person by completing one of the forms below or young people can refer themselves.
