Every year, in the UK 9000 children and young people under the age of 30 lose their lives. Sadly, this statistic doesn't include the 3000 stillbirths per year in the UK and those parents who suffer the death of their son or daughter over the age of 30.
You may know of friends, colleagues or family members who have been affected by such a devastating loss. You can directly help by joining our Friends of TCF scheme. With your help we can ensure we support the thousands of parents, siblings and grandparents who suffer the death of a son or daughter, brother or sister, or grandchild each year.
£50 enables 10 families to receive an information pack about our bereavement support
£100 provides copies of supportive leaflets to 6 local support groups in one region of the UK.
£150 funds one bereaved parent volunteer to attend a training day for leading a support group for bereaved parents.
£300 provides training and support for one bereaved parent volunteer to offer support to newly bereaved callers on our National Helpline.
You can become a Friend of TCF with a regular annual donation, half yearly, or monthly.
Whatever suits you.
For as little as £10 a month, you can make a big difference to the services and support our charity is able to offer bereaved families.
