Caroline Worsfold

Caroline Worsfold is the chaplain at St Benedict's Hospice, Sunderland. Caroline leads a team of staff and
volunteers who are involved with bereavement support across the services.

In the past six years, Caroline has been concerned to offer improved bereavement support to children whose parents (and grandparents) have died within the services. The first animation project in 2006, ran in conjunction with Sunderland University and gave children and adults an opportunity to work through some of their grief by using animation techniques. Caroline believes the process was a helpful one to all who took part that she has continued to offer a variety of sessions focusing upon
children's needs. This year she is participating in another Animation bereavement group and she
hopes that it will be of similar benefit to the young people involved.
