Daisy's Dream

Organisation/Service Details

Organisation Details

Description of activity

Daisy's Dream supports children and their families who are affected by life-threatening illness or bereavement.

The death or serious illness of a significant person in a child’s life can be devastating and difficult to understand. It can have a major impact on life at home, school life, and friendships.

We offer a flexible service which is tailored to meet the individual needs of each child and their family. This may include:

Telephone support and advice for parents/carers/professionals
Home and school visits for the child or young person
Group events
Training for associated professionals
Originally set up to meet the needs of children who had been bereaved, over recent years we have expanded our service to encompass families where there has been a serious illness diagnosis.

Parents, carers and professionals can contact us here at Daisy’s Dream for advice on ways to support children and young people. This support is available throughout Berkshire and the surrounding areas.

Description of Eligibility or Referral Criteria and Pathways (if applicable)

Daisy’s Dream works with children of all ages up to the age of 18/19 and in full time education. Children and young people who have been bereaved of someone significant in their lives or who are living with someone with a serious illness qualify for the service. If initial telephone support is not enough then an assessment visit will take place for an introduction and to give a description of our service.

Referrals are usually taken over the phone, however they can also be taken by email or letter as well. Parents / carers can self-refer along with professionals working with children providing that the parent/carer is aware of the referral.

Response time is usually 3-5 weeks from the date of referral. There is no waiting list. A Family Worker will make contact within this timeframe to assess the suitability of the referral and advise what support can be given.
