We have been working with Norfolk based bereavement charity Nelson’s Journey developing a new resource specifically for the charity. The giant board game is designed to encourage children and young people to talk about their feelings and views regarding bereavement.
The idea was generated by the Nelson’s Journey Youth Panel who felt that it was important to educate schools, staff and young people about how to support bereaved young people. The youth panel worked closely with us throughout the entire process, which began with a brainstorming day at Orchard Toys HQ, followed by presentations to the youth panel and a final celebration day when the board game was launched!
Simon Wright, Chief Executive at Nelson’s Journey said “We’re grateful for the support of Orchard Toys and proud of our young volunteers and staff who have worked hard to create a resource that will encourage those conversations. We believe that this is the only resource of its kind in the UK”.
Ali Brown, Marketing Manager at Orchard Toys says “It has been a pleasure to work with the Nelsons Journey team, on a resource that is very different in topic and style to our traditional educational games. Our design team have been very passionate about the project and have worked hard to create a resource that looks engaging and will encourage children and young people to participate.”
