Local support contact

Local Support Contacts befriend and support parents via the telephone, face-to-face meetings and sometimes email too. They will put parents (often with similar experiences) in touch with one another so that they can support each other and develop friendships.

We try to offer Local Support Contacts a 'How to Help' day to provide you with information about The Compassionate Friends and supporting others. You will also have the support of a regional coordinator.


For more information, a volunteer application form and/or to reserve a place on the above day please contact us at info@tcf.org.uk or 0345 120 3785.
