Overlooked & Forgotten: Ensuring adequate bereavement support for everyone affected by youth violence and trauma
Tuesday 9th April | 11am to 2m | The Law Society 113 Chancery Lane London WC2A 1PL

At the start of 2023 Safer London, UCL, and Child Bereavement UK, embarked on research looking at what bereavement and loss support is available to those who have been impacted by youth violence related murder.

Spearheaded by bereaved parent Karen Green Stewart, who lost her son Lamar to murder in 2017, the research aimed to assess the existing support systems in place for anyone impacted by this type of tragedy, and whether that support is adequate for those who need it. Our goal is to inform a culturally competent model of support, one that is shaped by the authentic voices, experiences, and opinions of those directly impacted.

On the day we share insights from our research, as well as discuss next steps. The event will feature presentations and panel discussions featuring UCL researchers, the Safer London project team, as well Karen Green Stewart, and opening remarks by Claire Waxman, London’s Victim’s Commissioner.
