Meet our team

Our team is headed up by Megan Itson and Sarah Applewhite

Megan Itson – Senior Bereavement Support Worker – Children and Young People (funded by BBC Children in Need)

“I hold a Masters in Social Work and I have been supporting children, young people and families since 2005, both in the voluntary and statutory sector. It was in my previous roles that my interest in bereavement and loss really began to develop.

“Here at Just ‘B’,  I support children, young people and families. Support can mean anything you like…..from sitting and chatting, having a cry, playing in the sand tray, making a memory box or telling the story of what life is like for you. Just ‘B’ is your space.”

Sarah Applewhite – Adult Bereavement Manager

“My name’s Sarah and I’m a social worker and more recently, a counsellor by training. I’ve worked at Just ‘B’ since 2015 and was a bereavement support volunteer with the service prior to that. A professional, personal and also academic interest in grief and bereavement have brought me to Just ‘B.’

“Bereavement support means different things to people coming to Just ’B’ and together we can work on helping you share what is important – whether this is simply through talking or using more creative ways. Here at Just ‘B’ you can express all you are holding and experiencing in a safe and trusting environment and hopefully, over time, find a way to be in the world.”
