About Child Bereavement UK

Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement. Every year we train almost 7000 professionals, helping them to better understand and meet the needs of grieving families.


We provide ongoing professional support to bereaved children and families and also support the individuals and organisations that become involved with these families. We do this through our training, our national Support & Information line, via our website, and face to face at an increasing number of locations across the UK.


We continually strive to raise the profile of child bereavement as an issue, and to ensure that the interests and needs of bereaved children and families are reflected in policy and practice. We map and raise awareness of the support that is available across the UK and are a trusted authority for the media and others on issues relating to child bereavement.


In the UK, when a baby or child dies, or a child is bereaved, many of those affected are unable to access good quality support which meets their individual needs. Child Bereavement UK believes all families should have the support they need to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. Our aim is to make sure they do.
