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.
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:
