Our History

Prior to the formation of Mosaic, support for bereaved children and young people in Dorset was extremely limited. Whilst local hospice care recognises the need for family support pre and post death, these services do not usually extend to causes of death other than terminal illness.

Founded in June 2007, the child bereavement charity in Dorset was created to fill the gap in the provision of bereavement services for children and young people across the county.

Mosaic provides grief counselling for young people and support to children and families who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or loved ones through suicide, murder, terminal illness and sudden or traumatic death.  


To create a child centred service which offers a pathway of support for 
bereaved children, young people and their families.  

To provide support for those young people facing the death of a loved one.


To develop a Dorset wide network of specialist bereavement support for all children,
young people and their families.

To work collaboratively with other agencies to enable a cohesive framework of support before,
during and after the death of someone close.
