Apart of Me is a charity dedicated to supporting children, young people, and parents through loss and trauma.
Our aim is to be your trusted guide through life's biggest challenges. We empower you to work with 'difficult' emotions and to discover your own strength and wisdom hidden in the darkest of places.
At the core of what we do is our multi-award-winning therapeutic game, which was co-created by experts in child psychology and bereaved young people. It translates bereavement-counselling techniques into a magical 3D world and is totally free to use.
The game was named Best Youth Focused Emotional Support Application at the Global Health & Pharma Technology Awards and received a Points of Light Award from the Prime Minister. We were also a finalist at the Tech4Good Awards and shortlisted for a BAFTA Award. Apart of Me has been featured by the BBC, The Guardian, Evening Standard, Huffington Post, and ITN.
We've been awarded the Orcha Health App Quality Mark, been included in the Welsh Government's Mental Health Toolkit, received a recommendation on this list of Notable Digital Media For Children from the US, and to top it all off Louis received an award on behalf of Apart of Me from the Prime Minister's Office.
