A charity which supports bereaved children and young people has stopped its face to face support service because of the advice surrounding coronavirus.
Norfolk-based Nelson’s Journey announced it was pausing such support, although said it was trying to ensure its support line would still be available.
That would mean child bereavement support workers, working from home wherever possible, will still be able to talk to those with concerns.
The charity said all families with support sessions, both one to one and a planned therapeutic weekend, between now and the end of the month would be contacted, with the situation reviewed at the start of April.
An Easter egg hunt has also been cancelled.
