Location: Reading, Berkshire
Campaign: To help young people dealing with grief

My name is Hannah Carter and I’m 26*-years-old.

 

When I was 17, my mum passed away after a four-year battle with cancer.

 

My life was thrown into the air at 100mph and I didn’t know how to cope.

 

I have now accepted that everyone grieves differently, in their own time, and that there is no final destination.

 

Now after tackling my grief head on, I am living life more positively.  I can proudly say that I have turned my life around and I am ready to help others to do the same.

 

By creating a booklet with Fixers aimed at young adults dealing with grief, I hope I can show them that there are many ways to deal with bereavement and learn to cope.

 

We need to open up more about this difficult subject and I want to encourage young people not to push their grief aside.  They need to know that it’s ok not to be ok.

 

*Some Fixers exceed the age range of 16 to 25 during the course of their project.

My project was supported by the Blagrave Trust.
