, a charity which supports bereaved children. Suzannah Phillips, Head of Clinical Governance and Professional Development for Winston’s Wish, says “If it’s your first Father’s Day without your dad then you might find yourself feeling upset and tearful and it may seem that other people don’t know what to say at first. For other children and young people, it might be a chance to remember and celebrate their dad’s life... As Lottie says in the video, it’s OK to be sad on Father’s Day and it’s also OK to want to be happy and celebrate too. Although you will always miss that special person it’s important to know that you can go on to live a positive life after the death of a loved one.”
