Meerkat Mentors

Emily, Amelia, Megan, Ellie and Georgia are five exceptional young adults who a few years ago, experienced the death of a close family member. They each accessed bereavement support from Rowans Meerkat Service and want to use what they went through, to try to help other children facing the loss of a loved one by becoming Meerkat Mentors.

In 2016, Emily, Amelia, Megan (and sister Amber), Ellie and Georgia spent a few months working alongside second year Media students from Southampton Solent University to create individual short films about their experiences of bereavement.

The films capture the personalities of our Mentors and convey their stories on film in a very honest and moving way. We are incredibly proud to share their stories with you and their messages of love and hope for the future.
