Welcome to Soar!
Hi I’m Gennifer and I am 20 years old.


Five years ago (when I was just 15), one of my closest friends sadly lost her two year long battle with cancer and died a few days short of her 16th birthday.


Due to my personal experience of bereavement at an early age, I have decided to create a Fixers project that will offer more support and advice for young people and those around them who have been affected by it.


As a young person who has experienced bereavement through the loss of a close friend, I understand how much of an effect this can have on a young person's life especially whilst trying to balance school and exams too. I found that after my friend’s death, initially there was some support from the school, however, after a week or so this ended. I was also never shown/offered any resources or helplines to look at or get in touch with for additional support and advice; something which I believe would have helped as I found it difficult to admit to my friends and family that I was struggling to cope.


It’s with this in mind that I decided to create a website which will offer support and advice to young people going through bereavement, and hopefully show them that they don’t have to go through it alone.
