The Compassionate Friends is a national organisation of bereaved parents offering support, understanding and friendship to others after the loss of a child, of any age, from any cause.

  • weekend gatherings and retreats 
  • group support via social media in private, well-moderated Facebook groups
  • information leaflets, bereavement support publications and a unique postal library on all aspects of bereavement
