“Helping young people flourish and grow through loss”

After a 5 year battle against a rare form of brain cancer, the world lost an amazing man aged 34 on 1st October 2019. Stephen Green lit up the room when he entered it, and with a cheeky personality and a generous heart to go with it, the loss left a huge void in the hearts of everyone who knew him, but especially for his wife Samantha and their two children aged 7 and 10.

Supporting your children through grief is something no parent wants to go through, especially when they themselves are grieving; however, after managing a successful grief charity for adult services, Samantha decided to embark on a journey to create a bereavement charity for children and young people, and Forever Green was born.

Our children’s services Forever Green has great sentimental meaning to our team. Our charity manager Samantha has personally seen her children struggle through grief after the tragic loss of their father therefore Forever Green not only provides a service, but also creates a legacy in memory of a wonderful man who wanted to help others. The name as well as a tribute signifies to children that although death and loss is extremely difficult, that they can still grow and flourish in life and learn how to embrace the love and loss they feel to help them achieve this with pride.
