Based: Eastlake Park, Milton Keynes
Salary: £24,000 per annum (pro rata)

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. Every year we train around 10,000 professionals, helping them to better understand and meet the needs of grieving families.

In the UK, when a baby or child dies or a child is bereaved, many of those affected are unable to access good quality support which meets their individual needs. Child Bereavement UK believes all families should have the support they need to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. Our aim is to make sure they do.

Child Bereavement UK has been working in Milton Keynes supporting bereaved families and young people for over 5 years. We are expanding our service and are looking to appoint a skilled and compassionate practitioner where a baby or child has died, or where children or young people are bereaved. The role will involve supporting children and young people (up to the age of 25), their families and the professionals with whom they have contact and parents bereaved of a baby or child.
