Run for Jigsaw (South East) and support children through the loss of a loved one
We currently have two places left available for the Brighton Marathon on Sunday 6th April 2014. Public entries are now full. If you are interested in running for our charity please read the FAQs below:
What does Jigsaw (South East) do?
Jigsaw (South East) supports bereaved children, young people and their families and also those affected by a family member having a terminal diagnosis throughout Surrey, Sussex and surrounding areas.
The death or serious illness of a family member can be devastating and bring many challenges into the life of a young person.
Children need to given age appropriate information and support so that they can understand what is happening within their family. Parents may need reassurance and support during such a difficult time.
It is important that children are allowed to grieve in their own way and in their own time. They will have different responses to death and dying depending on their age and experience.
The impact of bereavement can be devastating and have a major impact on children’s home life, school and friendships. It may also affect their health, behaviour and ability to cope in school.
