Lionheart is the only service in WA to offer bereavement support programs to children and families. Lionheart provide bereavement education resources and information along with ongoing online programs and events, such as weekend camps to support grieving families.
WA Charity Direct has been supporting Lionheart since 2019. Our funding support funding covers the annual weekend camp which allows 20-25 new families to attend at no cost. Over the course of the weekend children participate in bereavement programs as well as has the opportunity to meet up with other children who have the shared experience of grief.
Funding from WA Charity Direct also assisted with the set-up of online programs during COVID restrictions. The launch of the Lionheart Lounge Program connected grieving children and families online through the isolating times of COVID. The Lionheart Lounge is now a mainstay offering a safe online space for children to connect, share and grow.
