Winston’s Wish, the charity for bereaved children in the UK, is delighted to announce it has been chosen as an official partner of the National Children’s Day 2016 Headspace programme.

National Children’s Day UK 2016 highlights the importance of childhood wellbeing and protecting the rights of children, enabling children to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. The support Winston’s Wish provides for children who have been bereaved is imperative in allowing children to learn to cope with their loss and look to rebuild their lives.

Headspace is the leading partner for the National Children’s Day 2016, which takes place on Sunday 15th May 2016. The Headspace programme will be donating free Headspace subscriptions to Winston’s Wish, with the Headspace app, which has over 6 million users, features a voiceover from Andy Puddicombe, a former Buddhist monk.

Headspace promotes mindfulness meditation, which has grown in popularity in the past few years, is the world’s leading mindfulness and meditation app. It uses technology to harness the simple art of meditation, providing daily meditation exercises, and is a proven treatment for stress, anxiety, a lack of focus, and much more.

Andrea Ramsey, Head of Marketing at Winston’s Wish commented:

“We are delighted to be chosen as a partner for the Headspace programme. Our team support families and young people to help them to understand the loss of a loved one and to lead a fulfilling life. The wellbeing of both our staff and volunteers is something we take serious, with the headspace partnership giving us the chance to extend our care and support to everyone at Winston’s Wish.”

Winston’s Wish will be actively celebrating National Children’s Day on social media, promoting the campaign and lending its voice to the celebrations.
