Richmond’s Hope has launched a service to help bereaved children in Glasgow, which is based in Govan. We provide one-to-one support to young people between the ages of four and 18 using therapeutic play and specialised grief activities to help them understand how a death has impacted upon their lives.

How to make a referral

Anyone can refer a child to our service, but the person with parental responsibilities must give their consent. We also ask that the child/young person is aware of the referral and understands how the person died

Referrals are taken over the telephone. You can call us on 0141 230 6123. We will then arrange for an assessment to take place to make sure our service is right for the child or young person.

What we do

We provide individual support on a weekly basis. During the sessions we’ll explore memories, talk about feelings and help develop coping strategies. Sometimes the death may have been traumatic, if the person died through a sudden illness, accident, suicide, or murder. Even if the death is anticipated, due to a long illness, children can still be shocked and need help to understand what happened and deal with their feelings.

Who we are

Our team has three members of staff – two support workers who are trained in childhood bereavement and a manager.

Lynsey Semple , Bereavement Support Worker

Amy Maloy , Bereavement Support Worker


Val Scholfield, Manager
