CARIS Islington offers a specialist service for bereaved children which is called rucksack.
At rucksack they offer a selection of therapeutic programmes for bereaved children aged 3 to 11. Trained counsellors visit the child at home, or at school, usually once a week, for as many visits as necessary. They also have a play therapy room at their premises and children are able to attend for counselling there. We regularly provide small toys for the children to use in their play therapy.
