We would love your feedback on our Draft standards on childhood bereavement in Ireland

The ICBN has developed, in draft format, Standards for supporting children who are bereaved in Ireland and we would welcome discussion and feedback on these. It is hoped the Standards will be implemented nationally and used as a best practice model to aspire to by those providing support to bereaved children. We welcome your feedback on these standards.  You can download the standards here.
