How to refer a child for support


If you would like to make an enquiry for bereavement support, complete the ‘Request a Callback’ and one of our team will be in touch. 

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 knows the circumstances of the death.

 Referrals are taken over the telephone. Once a referral has been received we will arrange an appointment for an assessment to take place to ensure that our service is right for the child or young person.  

 If your child has been receiving therapeutic support, please allow six months from the completion of this support before referring to Richmond’s Hope. This is so that your child/young person has the opportunity to process and put into practice the skills they have gained from their support, and it may be that they do not require bereavement specific work if they are grieving in a healthy way
