Every day Child Bereavement UK deals with something that many people find too unbearable to contemplate – the untimely deaths of a parent or a child. Deaths that can shatter lives and leave sheer devastation in their wake.
Child Bereavement UK’s vision is for all bereaved families to have the support they need to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies, and in the last year they have responded to a significant increase in the number of families seeking support, an increase of 44%. They responded to a 66% increase in enquiries to their helpline service and the number of professionals they trained increased by 43%.
Heart of Bucks are proud to have previously awarded funding to Child Bereavement UK to support children and young people in Buckinghamshire through their free, professional bereavement support.
Winners will be announced on Thursday 20 September – we wish them the best of luck!
