The Society of Dorset Men’s latest charity initiative is Mosaic, who since 2007 have supported many bereaved children, young people and their families all over the county.

Parent Trustee June Carter from Weymouth received the £300 cheque from Society Vice Chairman Andrew Prowse.

“I’m absolutely thrilled, Mosaic is such an engaging charity- we help put broken lives back together again,” commented Mrs. Carter. “We are all very grateful for the donation, which will fund one of our residential camps at Leeson House in Langton Matravers.”

“Any bereavement in a family is tragic enough, but when a child dies that is even more upsetting,” says Andrew Prowse, Vice Chairman of The Society of Dorset Men. “We like to support Dorset charities that do good work and deserve better recognition for the effort they put in to improve the lives of the people of Dorset.”

Based at Milborne St. Andrew, Mosaic offers a pathway of support and guidance for bereaved children, young people and their families. They offer support to those facing the death of a loved one. Children are encouraged to manage their emotions safely through storytelling and creativity. The residential camps allow children and young people to remember their special person, share their experiences and have some fun. Mosaic offers bespoke training to professionals working with bereaved children and young people.
