Sources of information and support
Here are some sources of support – for parents and for children – which you may want to call on from time to time.
The contacts below concentrate on supporting a child when a parent has cancer. There are other organisations that can help when a parent is seriously ill with other conditions, for example MS, MND or AIDS.
Similarly, all children’s hospices now offer services to the siblings of children in their care. They should be able to offer helpful resources – or contact the association of Children’s Hospices (www.childhospice.org.uk).
