Monday’s Speaker – Chris Waugh, National Center for Childhood Grief

National Centre for Childhood Grief (NCCG)

The NCCG is a Sydney-based charity dedicated to supporting bereaved children aged 3-17 years after the death of their parent, sibling or other close loved one. Since 1994 the NCCG has provided free specialist care to thousands of Australian children. Their services include individual counselling, group programs, adventure camps, parent support and outreach to schools, hospitals and other community organisations. Close family bereavement is one of the most traumatic experiences of childhood, significantly impacting a child’s mental and physical health, education and social connection. 1 in 20 Australian children will experience the death of their parent and many more the death of a sibling – 10,000 children each year – yet specialist support services are rare, expensive and hard to access. The NCCG was founded to address this critical gap in Australia’s preventative health care system. The charity relies on community donations to fund its free community services with minimal support provided by government.
