Introducing the 'Help Me, I'm Grieving' podcast

2022-07-25

Scotty’s Little Soldiers, the charity for bereaved military children, has released a new podcast series, ‘Help Me, I’m Grieving.’

‘Help Me, I’m Grieving’ is a series of short conversations between Lorna Vyse, the charity’s Child Bereavement Support Specialist, and Ben, who has experienced childhood bereavement. The goal of the podcast is to offer expert guidance to anyone who has experienced childhood bereavement or knows someone who has.

The conversations explore many aspects of bereavement and its impact on children. Each episode has three versions, each aimed at supporting a different age group. These are: younger children of primary school age, teenagers and young adults, and parents and carers providing support. 

Scotty’s Child Bereavement Support Specialist, Lorna Vyse, said: "Supporting children and young people around death and bereavement is vitally important, but not a subject that anyone likes to talk about. We wanted to create the podcast as a different method to help parents and carers, as well as children and young people directly, to cope with the effects of grief and bereavement. We hope by having an open conversation and tackling some sensitive subjects, we can make a difference." 

Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting children and young people (0 to 25 years) who have experienced the death of a parent who served in the British Armed Forces.   

Inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott, following the death of her husband Corporal Lee Scott in Afghanistan in 2009, the charity, which was set up in 2010, provides support and guidance to hundreds of bereaved military children and young people throughout their childhood.   

Scotty’s provides its members with access to bereavement support, outstanding development opportunities and the chance to smile again.
