The Good Grief Project, which began as a project to make a documentary film about the grief of bereaved parents and the continuing bonds they have with their dead child, has now become a charity.  Their mission is to support families grieving after the untimely death of a loved one, particularly the death of a child and to promote an understanding of what it means to grieve.



Meanwhile the film now named 'A Love That Never Dies' will be on a UK-wide tour later this year.

The JMT is now supporting the Ashdon Jazz Academy.  This is a new charity set up by a bereaved mum in memory of her daughter who ended her own life, aged 14.

Many teenagers are struggling with depression, low self-esteem, negative body images, self-harming, eating disorders, bullying, the pressure of premature sexualisation, gang sexual exploitation and other emotional difficulties

The Ashdon Jazz Academy aims to provide these female teenagers with a dedicated trained female mentor.
