Episode 8

Barriers to Children’s Grief Within Large Urban Centres

With the COVID-19 pandemic still upon us and schools closed with children engaging in online learning, it is assumed that this is an accessible way to continue the learning. Unfortunately this model does not take into account the accessibility challenges with ‘online learning’ for many children and families within the Greater Toronto Area. These issues with accessibility extend to children’s grief support programs that have also resorted to online formats. This has further challenged those demographics of peoples seeking support who do not have the space, technology, privacy, or cultural appropriateness to align with this medium of support.

Joining us in this episode is Tory Hagerman of Gilda’s Club of Greater Toronto, who speaks to such challenges within a large urban centre such as Toronto, as well as possible solutions in an effort to adapt and be more accessible to the diversity of peoples within its catchments.

Join us for an informative and enlightening episode!
