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.

This is your charity but we can't do it without your help. If you are not already a donating member of The Compassionate Friends please JOIN 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 member.

£50 a year enables 10 families to receive an information pack about bereavement support after child loss.

£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 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 in the post of our supportive magazine, Compassion (written by bereaved parents for bereaved parents) and our charity's newsletter, TCF News.

It’s easy to join:
