Child Bereavement UK


Add to shortlist

Child Bereavement UK helps families to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. We support children and young people (up to the age of 25) when someone important to them has died or is not expected to live, and parents and the wider family when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying.

We offer free, confidential bereavement support for individuals, couples, children, young people, and families, by telephone, video or instant messenger, wherever you live in the UK. We also offer face-to-face support from a number of locations.

We welcome families and individuals of any gender or gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, disability, race, religion, faith, belief, or sexual orientation.

We will endeavour to source interpreters / BSL interpreters where needed / possible.

The following support groups run at various times, by video and /or in person in some areas of the UK:

  • Groups for families - facilitated groups for bereaved families where children aged 4-12 and their adult carers can meet others and explore their feelings through creative activities
  • Groups for young people - facilitated groups for those between the ages of 11 and 25 to meet for social activities and to work on creative projects
  • Groups for parents - facilitated groups for bereaved parents and carers to meet in a supportive environment
