Winston’s Wish provides emotional and practical bereavement support to children, young people and those who care for them, after the death of a parent or sibling. Our expert teams offer one off and ongoing bereavement support and we also provide online resources, specialist publications and training for professionals such as social workers and teachers etc.
The death of a parent in childhood can be the most traumatic experience a child will ever have to face. It is a life-altering, sometimes life-threatening event, which can, for the most vulnerable, lead to devastating lifelong consequences, including physical and mental illness, social exclusion and shortened life expectancy. But it doesn’t have to. With the right support, given at the right time, and in the right way, children can go on to live happy and healthy lives. Winston’s Wish is determined to achieve its vision of a society in which every child can get the help and support they need when someone close to them dies.
