Help ensure no child or young person has to grieve alone

You may have previously used our services, or maybe you know a child who will need them in the future. Please consider donating today so there is always someone like Lauren on the end of the phone, live chat, and email, to listen and ensure no child or young person has to grieve alone.

This week alone, around 365 calls, emails and live chat messages will be answered by our bereavement support team, each one an opportunity to make a difference.

“My role on the help and support line is an essential one as I offer children and young people who need support a safe space to talk about their own grief. We have children as young as 5 call us, and the conversations I have daily provide much needed support so those who reach out will not be alone with how they’re feeling.”

“Every conversation we have is crucial. I make sure every individual feels heard, acknowledged, and less alone in their grief. No child should have to deal with the death of a loved one, but we know that isn’t possible. What we can make possible is providing every child with the right support when they reach out to us.”

“I know that just one conversation can have a life-changing impact on a child’s life and ensure they are not alone in their grief.”

“At the end of each day, I am privileged to know that I have provided even a glimmer of hope to a bereaved child during some of their hardest moments… but I can’t do it alone.”

Lauren ends each conversation by saying, “We’re always here. Whenever you need to talk, we’re here to listen.”

Thank you for making this a reality.

By donating today, you can make sure we are there for children and young people during some of their hardest moments.
