Remembering Dad on Father’s Day

Winston’s Wish understands that for children and young people coping with life after the death of their father, this weekend can be particularly poignant.

Supporting Winston's Wish enables us to continue our support for bereaved children

More than 100 children are bereaved of a parent every single day in the UK

This is the most fundamental loss a child will ever face. Winston’s Wish believes in a society in which every child can get the help they need when someone close to them dies. With the right support at the right time, a child can face the future with confidence and hope.


We provide professional therapeutic help in individual, group and residential settings. We are the only specialist provider of support for children bereaved through homicide and suicide, as well as military families who have been bereaved.

National Helpline

The Winston’s Wish Freephone National Helpline is a vital support tool for those coping with bereavement. It is manned by trained clinical practitioners and is free and confidential. Call 08088 020 021 for free advice and support.
