Because family life matters

Meet the Irvines – bereaved parent befrienders


Rodney and Sandra Irvine live in Fivemiletown in Northern Ireland. They have three living children but sadly, in the mid 1990s, they lost two babies. In this clip they talk about their experiences as bereaved parents and the help they received from Care for the Family’s Bereaved Parent Support. The Irvines also share a little about their work as befrienders to bereaved parents.
