About Jigsaw SE Training
For a young person, the death or serious illness of a family member can be devastating. Children need age appropriate information and support but often the people who work with them every day can feel unsure of what to say or do to help.
Our courses are designed to provide you with the knowledge and confidence to be able to understand what is needed and offer support, enabling you to make a positive difference at a critical time in a child’s life.
