The Atlas Programme is a brand new initiative run by Compton Hospice, funded by a generous donation from the Connie and Albert Taylor Trust.
In 2017, it is estimated that over 12,000 11-16 year old pupils in Wolverhampton were affected by a significant bereavement, and with children spending up to six hours a day in school, teachers and other staff within the school environment are highly likely to be considered a key source of support. Through the Atlas programme, we aim to equip all staff working within schools with the knowledge, skills and confidence to help children navigate their way through their journey of bereavement.
The Atlas programme is available free of charge to those working within secondary schools in Wolverhampton, and includes a range of workshops, drop in sessions and study days. In addition, the programme can support the development of a whole school approach, integrating effective bereavement-related actions, underpinned by research, into existing policy, procedure and practice. The programme is also suitable for those who work with children in community or health and social care settings.
