Supporting families of complexly poorly children and families of child loss

What we do

Think of us as a hand to hold.

An understanding, accompanied by a friendly smile and warm voice.

We are a safe space that says, “I understand”, “You are not alone” and “We are here”.

Family Support at Reuben's Retreat

We offer two different branches of family support at Reuben’s Retreat.

Every story is different and we offer both practical and emotional support and promise to walk side by side with a family for as long as we are needed.

This includes delivering a bespoke and tailor-made support package for each family and guidance to help them navigate their journey.

Our offering is wide and varied as every family is unique, but here are some examples of the family support services we provide:
