The founder of a charity which supports bereaved children is leaving her role as chief executive after 15 years.
Mrs Stokes will continue as a consultant clinical psychologist
Julie Stokes will continue to work with Winston's Wish as a consultant clinical psychologist.
The charity helps young people who have lost a parent or sibling to deal with their grief. Today, 16,000 children and families use its helpline every year.
"When I founded Winston's Wish, I did not imagine then that we would achieve so much," said Mrs Stokes.
"We now provide a range of services that encompass support for those bereaved through manslaughter, murder and suicide as well as terminal illness and sudden death.
"As we start to plan our next 15 years, we need to ensure that we continue to grow and flourish and really cement our position as the leading national charity for bereaved children."
Mrs Stokes set up Winston's Wish after seeing similar child bereavement services while visiting the US on a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship.
