The Knowle charity helping children affected by bereavement

A grassroots charity in Knowle that provides support to young people affected by bereavement is one of the causes set to benefit from Bristol Giving Day.

Grief Encounter South West, previously known as The Rainbow Centre for Children, offers free, professional, bespoke services for young people and their families after the death of a loved one.

Speaking about what it has meant for her, seven-year-old Daisy says: “When I first started coming to the centre, I felt quite scared and awkward. My dad had died and then my counsellor who was helping me at school died and things just felt worse.

“I felt really sad and kept thinking, why me? I found it difficult to get to sleep and in school it was hard to concentrate and stay in lessons. I was feeling really sad and missing daddy.

Hepatitis C could be prevented worldwide by reducing transmission in people who inject drugs

Stepping up efforts to prevent transmission of hepatitis C among people who inject drugs, could reduce future infections by 43 per cent globally, according to a study by researchers at the University of Bristol published in the Lancet Gastroenterology and Hepatology on Tuesday 9 April 2019.

Hepatitis C is a virus that is passed on through blood exposure and results in liver disease. It is estimated that over 70 million people are infected with the hepatitis C virus worldwide and that around 400,000 people with hepatitis C die each year due to related conditions such as cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer.

People who inject drugs are at high risk of becoming infected with the virus through the sharing of needles, syringes and other injecting drug equipment. While the percentage of people with hepatitis C is estimated to be less than one per cent in most countries, the percentage of people who inject drugs with hepatitis C tends to be over 30 per cent.

The researchers used mathematical modelling to estimate how much the sharing of equipment for injecting drug use contributes to the hepatitis C epidemics for 88 countries, which account for 85 per cent of the world’s population.

They estimated that, if hepatitis C transmission due to the risk associated with injecting drug use was removed, around 43 per cent of all infections up to 2030 would be prevented globally.
