Our mission as a Charity, and as bereaved parents is :

  • To give families as much practical help and information as possible, to help make the hardest decisions imaginable, more informed
  •  Educating and empowering healthcare professionals and those who work directly with families, so they can deliver improved services and care
  • To be able to offer direct support, or signpost families to the most appropriate organisation for them
  • To contribute in the development of professional policies on the improvement of communication skills, treatment and care given; specifically when dealing with bereaved patients
  • To provide the hospital with literature outlining treatment and choices for life limiting or fatal antenatal diagnosis, early miscarriage, late miscarriage, eptopic and molar pregancnies

The Charity supports local families by :

  • Providing services, support and equipment to families who experience the loss of chid from early gestation pregnancy loss, to 16 years of age
  • Providing as much guidance as we can to local healthcare professionals and bereavement service providers, to ensure their services and treatment of bereaved families is improved
  • Delivering direct information to families after the death of a child; including practical help and advice about how to register a death, benefit entitlement, repatriation, funeral arrangements, burial / cremation and advice about choosing a headstone or memorial for your child
  • Ensuring that every parent who needs or wants it, are provided with a free Keepsake Package, Care Package or Memory Box with burial clothing for their child
