Over many years we have developed a list of books and resources which we and others have found helpful. If you would like further help in finding a title or would like to suggest a title to add to our listing please contact the Support and Information Team or call 01494 568900.
Please note: inclusion on this list does not constitute a recommendation by Child Bereavement UK, as we are aware that whether a book is helpful or not is subjective and as such is a decision that can only be made by the individual reader.
We have put links, where possible, from the books to their Amazon page. If you click through to Amazon via the hyperlinks and purchase a book Child Bereavement UK will receive a small commission from Amazon. It will not affect your purchase price, so please consider doing this.
