We came up with the idea when reflecting on our own journey and from speaking to other newly bereaved parents, who were often saying the same thing – that there are a lot of very good charities, support groups and individuals out there. However sometimes it can be difficult to find many of these, so we decided to create a new directory site listing support available both nationally and locally, from counselling, support groups and charities, to memory keepsake companies.
Nickie helped to compile the directory list and split these out into the relevant categories, whilst I set to work on building the website. It’s been several weeks of work in the making and hopefully the site will continue to grow long into the future as we become aware of more support on offer and as other sites become available. If you’d like to add any sites or Facebook pages that you’re aware of please do feel free to add them here: Add a site
All we hope for is that people may find it helpful and offers a little comfort in knowing that they are not alone. Knowing that there is support out there certainly made a difference to us.
