Nelson's Journey is a Norfolk charity that supports children and young people up to their 18th birthday who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life. We provide a range of support, appropriate for the needs of each child or young person. This may include one-to-one support and opportunities to meet others their age who have also experienced a bereavement.
