Invested in our Community / Nelson's Journey
Nelson’s Journey’s vision is that every bereaved child in Norfolk will look forward to a positive future, empowered to reach their full potential.
We will be supporting a quantity of the Nelson’s Journey Smiles & Tears Boxes for children or young people who have been recently bereaved over the next three years including postage. Having been created by the Nelson’s Journey Youth Panel and young volunteers, the contents of the box have been carefully chosen to support recipients through the grieving process.
The Smiles & Tears Boxes are a very important step in the grieving process for a young person who has been recently bereaved. The Nelson’s Journey Youth Panel identified that many adults and friends around a recently bereaved young person do not know what to say to offer comfort. They felt passionately that a supportive gift containing helpful information, activities and treats would have been of great comfort to them at a very challenging time helping to them to understand and cope with their feelings. The box contains age-specific items including specially created bereavement mindfulness colouring postcards, a feelings ball, emotions magnet, happy jar, soft toy, chocolate bar and journal.

We are also supporting the charity by funding new laptops for the support team and hope to hold business breakfast events once it is safe to do so.
