Child Death Helpline

< Back to directory


A freephone telephone helpline for all those affected by the death of a child.  The helpline offers a confidential listening service providing emotional support to anyone affected by the death of a child. The helpline is staffed by a team of volunteers who are parents who have been bereaved by the death of a child.  The service supports people affected by the death of a child of any age from pre-birth to adult, under any circumstances, however recently or long ago.

Our confidential helpline is not a counselling service but we are able to listen and provide helpful information on local services.  An interpreting service is available.
