The child and adolescent bereavement services (CABS) offers individual and group bereavement counselling to children and adolescents in the Northamptonshire area, in a school setting or at the Northampton General Hospital, children's out-patients department.
We offer support to parents, carers, school staff or any agency which are caring or working with a bereaved child or adolescent.
We also offer support to families where a member has a terminal illness.
Training can be provided to schools and agencies.
