The Compassionate Friends

The Compassionate Friends is an organisation of bereaved parents offering support, understanding, and friendship to others after the loss of a child, of any age, from any cause.

We offer a National Telephone Helpline, staffed by bereaved parents who are available for support and information 365 days a year. We also offer a website and moderated online forum, local support contacts and groups, weekend gatherings and retreats, information leaflets, bereavement support publications and a postal library. Some specialist sibling support (18 years plus) is also available.

The best way to begin finding appropriate access to your support needs is via our Helpline and website. Our Helpline also has the most up to date details about the support activities that might be available in your area.

The Helpline is open every day of the year from 10:00 – 16:00 and 19:00 – 22:00
