Bereavement – National Services

Dealing with bereavement is always challenging and even more so, when children and young people are involved – the following national organisations can support families at this time:-

Cruse Bereavement Care

Reactions which may be experienced after the death of someone who was close to you

Money Advice Service - Bereaved Parents’ Leaflet - The death of a baby is a very traumatic and painful event. As well as coping with the shock and sadness of losing a baby, the parents will also have to deal with their normal financial problems and daily tasks, and possibly some extra costs. Claiming benefits may be the last thing on their mind at this time, but it may be helpful to know what they could be entitled to.

Hope Again – Young People Living After Loss 

Child Bereavement UK – Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement. Our vision is for all families to have the support they need to rebuild their lives.

2wish upon a star - ’2 Wish Upon a Star’ was established in October 2012 to support those parents who lose their child suddenly and traumatically in memory of two special people.

Project 13 - Losing someone close to you at a young age is hard, through our own personal experience we set up Project 13 an online community that helps young people dealing with grief and loss. 

Bereavement Payments - The Government offers a range of support and benefits for those who have lost a spouse or child. For more information please click here.
