Snuggles and Smiles

For children a bear can be a best friend.  A friend to snuggle with, a friend to talk to and a friend to love.

We are aware that younger children sometimes miss out on receiving bereavement support because of their age and level of understanding.

Let Loose is one of the largest soft play centres in Stockport and boasts a large and exciting play area based in Hazel Grove near Stockport

Once Upon a Smile work closely with Let Loose by offering group sessions for children aged between 2 and 6 years who have experienced the death of a parent or sibling.

Children come together with other bereaved children to create a beautiful bear with the hope that the bear will provide comfort to them during difficult times.

Children are invited to place previous keepsakes or photographs into their snuggle bear followed by a beautiful child friendly heart memorial.

If you know a child that would benefit from Snuggles and Smile then please get in touch.
