Supporting families of complexly poorly children and families of child loss

Supporting families of complexly poorly children and families of child loss

Too good for earth, needed in heaven!

Reuben’s Retreat is a charity that was born in memory of Reuben Michael Graham who tragically passed away in August 2012, aged just 23 months.

Who are Reuben’s Retreat?

Desperate to ensure his short but precious life was not in vain, Reuben’s Mummy Nicola started the charity to help other families walking a similar path. Reuben’s Retreat is a home-from-home for families bereaved of a child and for children with life limiting or threatening conditions and their parents and siblings.
