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.
Our next 'How to Help' day for new local support contacts and volunteers is in LONDON on 6th April 2019.
Each year thousands of parents suffer the loss of a son or a daughter. Please help us to support families in their time of greatest need.
