This is a place where you can watch other peoples stories and find out first hand how they coped when someone they love has died.  

You can also contribute if you feel up to it. See below for how to create your own vlog.

Listen to Jane and Victoria talk about coping with traditions at Christmas after you've lost a loved one. 

Listen to Bridget and Jane talk about Children's Grief Awareness Week and how it's important to talk about your grief. It's important that if you feel alone you speak out and get the support you need, you don't have to go through anything alone.

Victoria lost her Dad and now helps others by volunteering at Hope Again.
