Hi. This section of our website is for young people who are at secondary school in Plymouth and the surrounding areas e.g. Tavistock, Saltash, Torpoint and Ivybridge.
You may be looking at our website because someone significant in your life has died or maybe someone is terminally ill. We know this can be a very lonely experience and it can feel like you are the only one in your class or school who is going through what you are. You may feel that nobody understands what you’re going through. At Jeremiah’s Journey we work with lots of young people who have experienced the death of someone special or who are expecting someone they care about to die. These are the ways in which we can support you:
We have a group that meets once a week over 6 weeks. At Jeremiah’s Friends we combine activities with some talking to figure out some feelings you might have and think about how to cope with them. We also consider memories, which may be happy but also tricky ones too. Groups can seem daunting to many people but there will be other people who are going through something similar to you, which can make you feel less alone.
Sometimes when a young person needs some extra support outside of one of our groups or finds it difficult to attend a group then someone from Jeremiah’s Journey can come and see you in school or at home. During 1-1 sessions, you will have the same Jeremiah’s Journey worker every time and it will be focused around supporting you through a difficult time.
