The Queenscourt Children and Schools Support Team, (CaSST), consists of a small number of specialist palliative care professionals who liaise with schools trying to support children facing or dealing with the loss of someone close to them.


CaSST aims to:
• Visit schools to offer support to teaching and support staff, when and where needed, upon request

• Provide help with communication issues around death and dying


• Signpost to other services, and specialist intervention tailored to individual needs

• Provide information on the building and implementation of organisational and individual strategies to help bereaved children and those facing loss.


• Facilitate study days for professionals dealing with children.


• Provide information about the bereavement process, including recognition of normal and abnormal grief.
