Our Mission

Approximately 6000 young people under the age of 24 die in the UK every year leaving  up to 50,000 newly bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents.

Our mission is to support families grieving after the untimely death of a loved one, particularly the death of a child. We do this by encouraging a creative response to grief and by looking for new ways of expressing the pain of loss with various art forms and media.

And to promote an understanding of what it means to grieve in a society that often has difficulty talking openly about death, dying and bereavement.  We do this with our films and talks.

Our Story

The Good Grief Project is the brainchild of bereaved parents Jane Harris and Jimmy Edmonds whose son Josh died in a road accident in Vietnam in 2011.

Jane is a psychotherapist and Jimmy is a filmmaker. Our response to Josh’s death has been to use both the still and the moving image to articulate our grief.

We now want to help you to find your way of expressing your grief.

Our Work

Grief is work – hard work. There’s no getting away from it. And grieving for a child is possibly the hardest work of all. Our latest documentary A LOVE THAT NEVER DIES (to be released 2017) chronicles some of that work as we travel across the USA and Mexico in search of others who like us, are also trying to find meaning in their child’s death. Watch the trailer below.

As well as our films and photography projects, we are developing a series of creative workshops, courses and retreats all designed to help you actively work with your grief.
