Support for families of child loss
We offer bereavement support to parents and siblings who have suffered the loss of a child.
Every story is as unique as the precious child they have lost. We offer both practical and emotional support and promise to walk side by side with a family on their journey. This includes delivering a bespoke and tailor made support package for each family and guidance to help them navigate their grief.
If you would like to join in any of our support sessions or services, we kindly ask that you first fill in a referral form to become a registered beneficiary family.
Our varied peer support groups enable parents of loss to come together, share their story and gain peer support. These groups help families to feel understood and accepted in a safe space.
Counselling & Talking Therapies
Counselling and talking therapies can help families to navigate the raw and painful emotions that follow the traumatic loss of a child and can walk with them through their healing journey.
We offer a range of wellbeing and holistic support sessions throughout the year, including reiki, yoga and meditation. The also provide a range of useful advice and wellbeing resources including books.
Memory Making Activities
We offer memory making activities for siblings and parents. It is a creative and meaningful way to continue bonds and remember precious loved ones.
When a child passes away it can be doubly challenging navigating the benefits systems, we can help with resources and work together with advisors who can help with social welfare processes.
