Every day Child Bereavement UK deals with something that many people find too unbearable to contemplate – the untimely deaths of parents and children. Deaths that can shatter lives and leave sheer devastation in their wake.
It’s human nature for us to want to distance ourselves from this as something that happens to other people, but every year child bereavement is experienced by thousands of families in the UK.
This year Child Bereavement UK enters its 21st year of helping families to rebuild their lives after bereavement. Please consider supporting Child Bereavement UK this year, as we celebrate what we have achieved over the last 21 years. We invite you to continue to be part of our journey, rebuilding lives together.
