Why Child Bereavement UK?

Child Bereavement UK helps families to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. We support children and young people (up to the age of 25) when someone important to them has died or is not expected to live, and parents and the wider family when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying. We provide training to professionals in health and social care, education, and the voluntary and corporate sectors, equipping them to provide the best possible care to bereaved families.

When you fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

  • a welcome email & fundraising pack from our events team
  • a charity running vest to wear on the day with iron on letters
  • support from our dedicated fundraising & events team to achieve your target
  • e-newsletters updating you with news throughout the charity
  • access to our online Facebook group, where other fundraisers share training and fundraising advice

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of my fundraising journey. The event was fantastic, I received my fundraising pack in good time for the event and there was lots of support on the day to help me through the ½ marathon. Lizee in the fundraising team, kept in regular contact which helped me to not only achieve my target but to nearly triple it! Cannot wait for my next event to help such a good cause!

Matt ran the Northampton Half Marathon and raised over £500
