I feel so much better now. It's good to say it out loud and talk things through

We provide confidential support, information and guidance to individuals, families and professionals throughout the UK. Our support team is available to respond to calls, Live Chat and email 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday, except for Bank Holidays. We are a member of the Helplines Partnership.

I contacted the helpline for some professional support how to best support a bereaved parent, which has impacted on my own emotional well-being. It was extremely helpful to talk through my worries, whilst also exploring appropriate ways I can support the family. Their knowledge and expertise has informed my practice whilst also giving me the confidence to support the bereaved families I work with. 

Using our Helpline, email support service or Live Chat

When you contact us, we offer you time to explore your situation and provide information and emotional support through active listening.  We can also direct you to other appropriate services, and can talk through approaches with you that other bereaved families have found helpful. 

We do not offer counselling, medical information or advice, and we are not an emergency service. 

Our services are confidential, but to help us answer your queries and guide you to appropriate support, we may ask some questions about your situation, such as your geographical location, and your age, or the age of those you are supporting. 

For more information about how we use any personal information you give us, see our Privacy Policy.
