Bereaved Parent Support – bereavement support events

Bereaved Parent Support runs special support days and weekends through the year in various parts of the UK.

We hope that the situation will change in 2021, but in the meantime we have developed an online support day. Click here for more details.

When you lose a child, you can feel you’re the only parents it’s happened to. Many people who have experienced the death of a child have found it really helps to get away and meet with others who have experienced a similar loss. For some this might be within months of their bereavement, while others prefer to leave it a bit longer.

It can be immensely comforting to go somewhere to reflect and spend time with others who understand exactly how it feels to lose a child. That’s why Bereaved Parent Support run special days and weekends throughout the year in various parts of the UK. These events are usually set in fully-catered, peaceful surroundings, with plenty of space and time to concentrate on rebuilding our lives and facing the future with hope.

Seeing people face-to-face and knowing they understand what it’s like to go through this loss can mean so much.

Over the course of a day or weekend, our team, all of whom have experienced the death of a child, will be open about their personal experiences, share practical suggestions on various topics, and provide space for you to share and be listened to.

Our aim is to help you:

  • understand and cope with loss
  • discover new hope
  • develop the resilience to rebuild your life.
