About our specialist nursing bereavement and play service

We provide specialist nursing assessment for children and young people with continuing care needs. We support with hospital to home transfer and make recommendations for packages of care at home, at school and in the community.

We also provide specialist play sessions and play support in the form of play plans for providers and parents. We also provide bereavement support pre and post bereavement in the form of initial face to face sessions and then bereavement groups.

Siblings are supported with events run every half-term and, in the holidays, as well as family events and an annual memory day. This is funded and supported by the charity Little Sparks Enfield which we have set up and runs alongside our service.

We provide

  • Specialist short breaks in the home in the form of play sessions
  • Bereavement support
  • End of life care
  • Play therapy
  • Assessment, support and advice regarding health funded care
