Change, Loss and Bereavement in Highland is made up of a collective of professionals from a variety of agencies who strive for better outcomes for children and young people who have experienced change and loss.
The aim of this website is to provide advice, guidance and links to useful materials, resources and other agencies who can support in times of change.
