A Plymouth-based charity that provides free support to children, young people and their parents/carers who have or are about to experience the death of someone special.
Currently, we directly support over 700 grieving children each year, and there are circa 2000 wider beneficiaries from the work we do.
The demand on the charity has grown steadily over the last five years and now, nearly half of the children and families that we support are bereaved through sudden and often traumatic causes of death, like suicide and road traffic accidents.
Nearly a third of the children that we support, are bereaved through long term illnesses, such as cancer. Sadly, almost 50% of those in our care have lost or are facing the loss of a parent.
