Professionals and Training

Since 1992, when Winston’s Wish was founded, we have built up a wealth of experience and expertise through our direct work with thousands of bereaved children, young people and families. We are pleased to share this knowledge to support others whose work brings them into contact with bereaved children and the adults who care for them.


Training days

We currently offer two study days which address specific bereavement issues. These are delivered in three regions: Cheltenham, Manchester and West Sussex.
