Today the Childhood Bereavement Network have launched a new website and resource called ‘Plan If’. This gives simple, practical advice to help parents put plans into place in case they die before their children grow up. This isn’t designed to make us all feel sad or overly worried, it is about making a plan just in case so that families can continue to enjoy life together. Current statistics show that every 22 minutes in the UK a parent dies leaving dependent children. Here at Jeremiah’s Journey, the highest proportion of the children that we see each year have indeed experienced the death of a parent. We know how important it is that parents plan ahead as sadly we see the impact if they haven’t had a chance to do so. Please take a look at the link below and think about what steps you or those around you might wish to take not just for now but for the future.
