Our specialist bereavement service is now available to families whose children were not supported by us prior to death. It includes a personalised pathway of support for three years and three months following the child’s death.

About our new service
Support for sudden and unexpected deaths
As part of our new service, we provide specialist care to families of babies or children who have died suddenly. This might be from an unexpected illness or a death that cannot be explained (subject to some exclusions). This starts by assigning a dedicated Family Support Worker to the family.
