Child Death Helpline

The Child Death Helpline is a helpline for anyone affected by the death of a child of any age, from prebirth to adult, under any circumstances, however recently or long ago.

We understand that the death of a child is one of the most devastating events that anyone may experience.  The pain may be greater than any other previously felt.  Even at its most distressing, the pain of grief is a natural reaction at this time.  Sometimes the feelings can be so overwhelming that they make everyday living very difficult.  Surviving the extremes of grief can seem impossible for a long time.  Family, friends, and others may be an important source of support but sometimes people need extra help.

What we offer?

A listening service that offers emotional support to all those affected by the death of a child.  An opportunity to talk in confidence to someone who has also experienced the death of a child.
