“This was my first experience of organising, and attending the Jigsaw Day, and I was really pleased with how it went.

The children really enjoyed it, and got involved in the different activities, and games. The parents also joined in on the fun, and it was great to see everybody chatting and laughing amongst one another. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly with everyone asking when the next one would be.

I’m looking forward to organising one later in the year. It was such a good day bringing the children together for some fun!” – Sarah our Child and Young Person’s Counsellor

During the Easter Holidays we welcomed some of the children and young people who use our Jigsaw Project, into the Hospice for some fun Easter activities!

They had an amazing time joining in with the activities such as drawing, Easter crafts, Easter egg decorating and even some Pictionary! It was a lovely opportunity for families to get together and share their experiences as well as the children meeting each other, some for the first time. There was loads of different craft stations that they could get involved with, the winner of the day seemed to be the chocolate egg decorating!

Jigsaw Day

“It was pleasure to pop along and meet some of the families who use our services and have a chat with them. I really enjoyed taking part in some of the activities, it was a really relaxed, informal day and look forward to the next one!” – Hollie from the Communications and Marketing Team

The Jigsaw Project works with Children and Young People who have experienced bereavement. We have a specially designed children’s and young person’s area in the Hospice where our experienced counsellors can help children and young people through difficult times. This service is open to referrals from the whole of County Durham and is available to any child aged 5-17 affected by anticipatory grief, grief/loss and bereavement relating to family, relatives and friends.

Referrals to the Jigsaw Project can be made by self-referral from a parent or family member, school, primary health care team, GP’s, mental health care teams or social workers.
