Each year thousands of families suffer the the loss of a son or a daughter leaving, not only bereaved parents, but also grieving siblings. You may feel unable to approach your parents when their own pain is so raw or you may feel that your own emotions are less important than theirs.

You might be in shock and denial, or you may feel guilty for being a survivor or in some way to blame for your brother or sister's death. This catastrophic event will change the relationships within your family, and you may now have become the eldest, the youngest or the only child. Please remember that you don’t ever need to be alone – your loss is valid, it deserves a voice and support.

As a bereaved sibling, this is also your charity, too, but we can't do it without your help. If you are not already a donating member of The Compassionate Friends please consider joining us.

You can also use this section to RENEW your membership.

We are not suggesting an amount for your donation and instead leave it up to you to decide what you would like to give to become a supporting member.

£50 a year enables 10 siblings to receive an information pack about bereavement support after the loss of their brother or sister

£100 funds one sibling volunteer to support others for a day at a retreat for bereaved siblings

£150 funds one bereaved sibling volunteer to attend a training day for leading an online or in-person discussion and support group for bereaved siblings

£300 provides training and support for one volunteer to offer support to newly bereaved callers on our National Helpline.

You can become a member with an annual, half yearly, quarterly or monthly donation. Whatever suits you. Please note that joining with a regular donation by direct debit helps enormously to keep our charity's admin costs down.

All TCF's donating members receive copies by email of our supportive magazine for siblings SIBBS Newsletter (written by bereaved siblings for bereaved siblings).
