BBC Children in Need is awarding £113,900 to a project in Hillingdon that works with disadvantaged children and young people.

The charity now has more than £262,800 invested in the borough following the first funding round of the year. 

Harlington Hospice can continue to provide one-on-one and group bereavement counselling for children and young people in Hillingdon.

The three-year grant will enable Harlington Hospice to extend its current bereavement support service to children and young people in the borough.

They will be supported in remembering those they have lost while reducing their anxiety levels and developing communication ability.

Steve Curry, chief officer at the hospice said: “The new funding from BBC Children in Need will allow us to help more children and young people who have experienced the death of a loved one, helping them come to terms with their emotions during such a difficult time in their young lives.”
