Pete’s Dragons (PD) provides bereavement support and counselling for families and communities impacted by suicide. During this shocking and amplified experience of loss, Pete’s Dragons seeks to let the family know that recovery is possible, that there is hope and that there will be support for them until they get to their ‘new normal’. From early help with coroners and inquests to advising on informing children, PD provides comprehensive support for the family within 48 hours of death. Over time, additional bespoke services are provided depending on the need. PD hosts therapy sessions in its headquarters and in the home, runs wellbeing and healing workshops and offers family fun days to provide a sense of community. The Fore’s funding will enable the extension of services to north Devon and release CEO time to develop sustainable revenue streams, enhance core services and work on strategic development.
