The Compassionate Friends is a charitable organisation of bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents dedicated to the support and care of other bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents who have suffered the death of a child/children.
We offer support both directly to bereaved families and indirectly by fostering understanding and good practice amongst professionals concerned with child death and by increasing public awareness.
We recognise that many who have suffered the loss of a child feel a bond with others similarly bereaved and wish to extend the hand of friendship.
‘Say Their Name’ a short film made by TCF for bereaved siblings, parents and grandparents
Bereaved siblings and parents talk frankly and openly about
their feeling on losing their siblings or child, and how
The Compassionate Friends supported them.
