CLIENT COMMENTS 

  • The support and understanding given at the Children’s Bereavement Centre has enabled my son to be the funny, intelligent, helpful 13-year-old I thought we would never see.  Thank you so much.

  • Amazing place.  The staff make the service amazing and know exactly what is needed and how to support a family when everything has collapsed under them.  Wonderful.

  • We wish to express our gratitude to the outstanding staff of this organisation.  They have always made us feel welcome and have supported us through a difficult phase in our lives.  Thank you we are very lucky and honoured to have come across your invaluable service.

  • A better understanding. My daughter has a better understanding of coming to terms with her loss and has learned to express her feelings more openly.
