Winston’s Wish, the leading childhood bereavement charity in the UK, is delighted to have been shortlisted for a Children and Young People Now award.


The charity, which supports children bereaved of a parent or sibling through an array of specialist services, is up for the Children and Young People’s Charity award and is excited to attend the ceremony in November.

This is the tenth year of the awards, which bring national recognition for projects and services that make a difference to children, young people and families right across the country. After the highest number of entries to date, Winston’s Wish came under scrutiny from a 16-strong panel of expert judges and was shortlisted in the category alongside seven other causes.

The winners will be revealed at a gala ceremony on the evening of Thursday 26th November inside the striking Georgian clubhouse at the Hurlingham Club on the banks of the River Thames in London.

Acting Chief Executive at Winston’s Wish, Catherine Ind, said:

“We are thrilled to have been recognised by Children and Young People Now. Our work with bereaved children and their families is vital in building confidence and resilience following a bereavement. We have everything crossed for the award ceremony in November and look forward to attending”.
