We help bereaved parents whose child has died at any age of any cause. We also support bereaved adult siblings and grandparents.

We offer a national helpline run by bereaved parents, support groups across the country and retreats. 

Bereaved parents need to know where to find help easily and support given by other bereaved parents is immensely helpful in terms of sharing and learning from each other


We offer online support groups and have opened a Grief Companion scheme to those areas where there is no support. This one to one peer support is invaluable 

Ensuring sufficient funds are raised so that the strategic objectives can be met
