Supporting bereaved parents &
their families after a child dies


TCF is a charitable organisation of bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents dedicated to the support and care of other bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents who have suffered the death of a child/children.

We offer support both directly to bereaved families and indirectly by fostering understanding and good practice amongst professionals concerned with child death and by increasing public awareness.

We recognise that many who have suffered the loss of a child feel a bond with others similarly bereaved and wish to extend the hand of friendship.

Remembering our loved ones at Christmas

We have two new cards for 2014. At such a painfully hard time for bereaved parents and siblings, our cards ask our families and friends to ‘Say their name at Christmas’

Coping with Christmas



When your child has died, Christmas can be unbearably difficult.

We hope that some of the ideas you will find [Here] may help and support you as you prepare for the holiday season…


‘Say Their Name’ a short film made by TCF for bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents 

Bereaved parents and siblings talk frankly and openly about
their feeling on losing their child, or sibling, and how
The Compassionate Friends supported them.
