We support children and their families following the death of a parent or sibling.
At a time when you are experiencing your own grief at the death of a partner, child, other family member or friend, it can seem overwhelming to offer support to your child or children. Winston’s Wish can support you and your family through this process.
Our freephone national helpline is a lifeline for anyone supporting a grieving child. It is free and confidential to call our trained practitioners.
We offer a whole host of face to face support services and are always working hard to extend the programmes we have on offer. Specialist work can be offered to all children and families bereaved of a parent, primary caregiver or sibling through homicide and military families who have been bereaved.
As a teacher or member of staff within a school community, it is inevitable that you will work with children affected by death in one way or another. The immediacy and enormity of these experiences may vary, but in each situation, you have a genuine chance to positively affect a young life.
Our publications and resources are designed to offer practical help and support to bereaved children and their families and will be of interest to parents or other family members, carers, teachers, health practitioners, faith leaders, social workers and members of voluntary and statutory services. Each purchase helps Winston’s Wish to assist bereaved children and young people.
You can visit our shop to purchase publications and resources.
We provide a monthly Drop-In service across our three key regions (the South West, South East and North West) where young people and families, carers, professionals and anyone concerned about a bereaved child can come and meet our practitioners in a relaxed and informal environment.
