National Bereaved Parents Day

The Compassionate Friends are supporting National Bereaved Parents Day on 3 July 2022.

National Bereaved Parents Day will take place on Sunday 3rd July during Bereaved Parents Awareness Month in July to raise awareness of all parents who have lost a child of any age, and from any cause. The day was initiated by the charity, A Child of Mine, and we are pleased to offer our support.

Please join us to help spread the message, keep that conversation going, raise awareness and show the bereaved parent community that they are not alone.

The theme of this year's day is Remember Me. See below for some of the wonderful and inspiring ways we honour and remember our precious children.

Please follow our Facebook page to see how you can show your support.

You can also view below our short video made last year.
We received more stories than we are able to share, but this moving video shows just a selection of the very special things that have been done in our children’s names. Their legacies live on in all of the incredible things that we do to celebrate their lives, and help us to carry them with us and keep them close to our hearts.

A warm thank you to all the parents and families who contributed in memory of their precious children.

Please do get involved by lighting a candle on Sunday 3rd July at 7pm to remember all of the children who have lost their lives too soon.
