Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals both when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, and when a child is facing bereavement. Our vision is for all families to have the support they need to rebuild their lives, when a child grieves or when a child dies. Every year we train more than 10,000 professionals, helping them to better understand and meet the needs of grieving families.
Our mission is to ensure the accessibility of high-quality child bereavement support and information to all families and professionals by increasing our reach and plugging the gaps that exist in bereavement support and training across the country and embedding standards in the sector; we provide support at a number of locations across the country.
Support includes: face-to-face support for individuals, couples, children, young people and families; facilitated groups for bereaved families providing an opportunity for children and their adult carers to meet others and explore their feelings through creative activities; facilitated groups for young people, where 11-25-year-olds work together to advise us on developing resources to help others; facilitated groups for parents, where bereaved parents can meet in a supportive environment. We also offer consultancy and bespoke solutions for organisations looking to address specific local needs.
Child Bereavement UK provides confidential support, information and guidance to families and professionals.
