SIX months after its relaunch, an organisation which works to comfort children after loved ones have died has moved into a new headquarters in Milford Haven.

Sandy Bear Children’s Bereavement Charity has moved into a new home at Europa House, 115 Charles Street, Milford Haven, following its time being based at FRAME, Merlin’s Bridge since it was relaunched in late October last year.

Posting on Facebook, the charity said: “Today was another milestone in Sandy Bear's journey, we've moved from Frame to Europa House, 115 Charles Street, Milford Haven.

“Once we're settled in we'll be having an open day so everyone can come and see our fantastic new space. We would like to thank everyone at Pembrokeshire Frame for having us and making us so welcome during our time there.”

The charity was established more than 20 years ago, and helped hundreds of children and young people between 0 and 17 years old.

But in 2016, the specialist grief service was closed down after funding from PCC and Hywel Dda University Health Board dried up.

After a passionate 17-month fundraising campaign, the service was revived in November last year as an independent charity.

At the relaunch in October Sandy Bear’s two clinical leads, Anita Hicks and Karen Codd, explained an important part of Sandy Bear’s work is making sure children have a clear explanation and understanding what has happened to their dead loved one.

Giving children this explanation is something adult family members might not be able to do if they are also grieving.
