The National Centre for Childhood Grief provides loving support in a safe place where children grieving a death can share their experience as they learn to live with its impact on their lives.
The National Centre for Childhood Grief is a well-established organization, whose founders, Dianne & Mal McKissock OAM, are internationally recognized for their expertise in the specialist field of childhood bereavement.
The centre also provides education and training for individuals, schools and other organizations handling the grief of children and young people.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Deborah Clay as Ambassador for the National Centre for Childhood Grief, a charity that provides grief counselling to bereaved children.
Deb has extensive experience in the media as the Sydney News Director for Southern Cross Austereo (Triple M and 2Day FM) and is a regular on Channel 7's "Sunrise", as one of "Kochie's Angels". She is humbled to be asked to be Ambassador. "The centre "A Friend's Place" offers children help, without judgement. Founders Dianne and Mal McKissock OAM are special, gifted individuals who are internationally recognised as experts in childhood grief. I am looking forward to being involved as the charity grows and evolves over the coming years".
National Centre for Childhood Grief, Chairman, Rick Taylor says Deb will be a great asset to the charity. "Deborah's ethical and empathetic outlook is in alignment with the organisation's values. She is committed to raising awareness of bereaved children and what we can do to help them learn to live with grief in their life". Deb will MC the "Remembering Hearts" event on Saturday October 11th.
