The teenagers will be invited to use the arts to process and explore their own experiences of loss as well as work with a filmmaker to create a short film series as peer support for other young people, exploring the things they wish they had known when they first lost someone.

The project is funded by The #iwill Fund and is made possible thanks to £50 million joint investment from The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. Co-op Foundation is acting as a match funder and awarding grants on behalf of the #iwill Fund.

Total Insight Theatre’s Ella Schwarz said: "It's a fantastic social action opportunity that gives young people with experience of bereavement the skills to provide peer support and help young people with similar experiences."
