Child Bereavement UK
Child Bereavement UK believes that all families should have access to the support and information they need when a child grieves or when a child dies. Through understanding their grieving process and receiving help in dealing with bereavement from appropriately trained professionals, families can learn to live with their grief and begin rebuilding their lives. That is why we are here.
Winston’s Wish is the leading childhood bereavement charity and the largest provider of services to bereaved children, young people and their families in the UK. We offer practical support and guidance to families, professionals and anyone concerned about a grieving child. We believe that the right support at the right time can enable young people to live with their grief and rebuild positive futures.
Cruse Bereavement Care
Cruse’s vision is that all bereaved people have somewhere to turn when someone dies. Grief is a natural process, but some people need support to understand and cope with what can be a devastating experience. Cruse offers specialist website, telephone, email and face-to-face support for adults, children and young people.
Bereavement counselling may be able to provide support during these very difficult times. Talking about the loss often allows a person to adjust to their new life with all its changes – good and bad. Keeping things bottled up or denying the sadness could prolong the pain. Any loss has to be acknowledged for us to move forward. Bereavement counselling tries to help clients find a place for their loss so they can carry on with life and eventually find acceptance.
The death of someone close to you can be emotionally devastating. You might find you experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms as you come to terms with your loss. This website gives information about where you can get support with bereavement.
