The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice recognises the support that some children and young people may need when living with a family member with a life-limiting or life-shortening illness, or when dealing with the impact of bereavement.
Our Butterfly Service staff offers support and advice to parents and carers about how best to support their child.
Our team of experienced counsellors and therapists offers one-to-one support for children and young people, support which can take place either here at Glasgow's Hospice or at school.
The Butterfly Bereavement group provides an opportunity to meet with other young people and get involved in activities that can help with loss.
In the bereavement group we make memory jars and frame photos of loved ones, and our doc spot is a safe place to ask questions about illness, death, and dying with our specially trained doctor.We also host an accompanying adult group that runs at the same time.
