    Hello again @and15 and thanks for reaching out. 

    I've had a quick look for potential sources of advice for you, The Good Grief Trust have a 'Things to consider' page, as part of their pre-bereavement advice. It might not be quite what you're looking for but I hope it helps.

    You might also like to contact Cruse, they do have a referral service for children and young adults, but they might also have some pre-bereavement resources available too.

    I will just tag @Alex_Scope in this for you @and15 just to give you the best possible chance of receiving some advice. Unfortunately, this is not an area I am familiar with.

    However, I would still be more than willing to listen to you should you want this additional support. Take care and, hopefully, you will receive the advice you are looking for soon  :)
