Posted by Lady Wimbledon | 21 March 2018 | Community Spirit, News

Local London charity, Jigsaw4U becomes a finalist in the 2018 Charity Film Awards for thought-provoking film, ‘Talking to children about death.’

Talking about death is never easy. In this film, four young people share their experiences of losing a loved one, living with a parent with a life limiting illness and about the support they have received from Jigsaw4U.

Established in May 1997, Jigsaw4U has spent the last 20 years helping children, young people and families affected by significant social and emotional issues including; bereavement, domestic abuse, child sexual exploitation, and mental illness. Last year they supported over 4,000 individuals in Merton and Sutton.

This film was created to show the impact their work has on the lives of children and young people who have experienced bereavement or have needed to prepare for the death of a loved one. They are working hard to increase awareness and understanding of bereavement issues that affect children and young people.

Pam Byfield, director of operations at Jigsaw4U says, “We are beyond excited to have reached the finals of the Charity Film Awards 2018 considering we are a small local charity competing amongst much larger national charities. We wanted to create a film with no fancy frills, that was simple and yet powerful so that the young people’s voices could be heard, and enabling them to express their stories directly to the viewer in their own words. We are so, so proud of them.”
