Smiles & Tears has been developed by Nelson’s Journey, a charity based in Norfolk, UK. They support children and young people aged 0 – 17yrs inclusive who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life. Their award winning Youth Panel identified a need for a Smartphone app which would help support children and young people in their grief. It provides an interactive tool to record memories, send gifts and write thoughts, feelings and emotions. As well as these interactive tools, Nelson’s Journey have also provided tips on how to manage emotions such as anger, confusion, guilt, loneliness etc. which are all common when someone has been bereaved of a special person.

The app was funded by BBC Children in Need and with significant support from Selesti a Norfolk based digital company, Smiles & Tears has been developed to support all children and young people who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life.

Lovely, simple but very effective app. However I’m having trouble adding any photos or seeing pictures of gifts etc.

I couldn’t recommend this more, honestly I have used this app for many years whilst grieving the losses of loved ones and I know it’s extremely hard to go through! It’s nice looking back on my diary’s on the app to see how comfortable I’ve got with them gone in a good way like I can reflect instead of feeling angry or guilty
