The NCCG provides, through its programs, a safe environment where bereaved children and their families can be encouraged to share their experiences.

This process enables bereaved children to learn how to integrate grief into their everyday lives. The NCCG has developed and uses an internationally recognised therapeutic model and applies this model in ways that meet the needs of individual children and the group.

Access to our services is self-referral by calling 1300 654-556.

For more information on any of these programs please contact us.
