Every 22 minutes a child in Britain is bereaved of a parent; this equates to 24,000 newly bereaved children each and every year.
Winston’s Wish is the leading childhood bereavement charity in the UK.
The death of a parent or sibling is one of the most fundamental losses a child will ever face. At Winston’s Wish, we believe that bereaved children need support to make sense of death and rebuild their lives – and that is why we exist.
Our vision at Winston’s Wish is that all bereaved children, young people and their families will receive the support they need to achieve their full potential. Meet the people who are working to make that vision a reality.Meet the team
