Loss of a Child – New UK Facebook page

Profile picture loss of a child Facebook group

The Compassionate Friends UK has a new private Facebook group for any parent whose son or daughter has died at any age, and from any cause. The group is called LOSS OF A CHILD. Your loss can have been just a short time ago or many years previously – all of you are warmly welcome.

We hope this new group will offer you support, encouragement, some hope and friendship. We hope to offer the opportunity to share our experiences and pain, some of the difficulties related to the loss of a child, things that may have been helpful to us on this journey, and anything else that you are feeling since your child died and want to share, get feedback on, or just because you need to give words to what is in your heart and mind.

To join, please email the moderators – Sue and Carolyn – at info@tcf.org.uk. We will email you back asking for some information about you and your child – so that we can ensure the group is safe and private. Once your details have been completed and emailed to us at info@tcf.org.uk, you will receive an invitation to join the Group via your email.

We look forward very much to welcoming you to the group.

TCF in the UK also have specialist Facebook groups for parents who have lost their only child or children (childless parents), those bereaved by addiction and parents bereaved by suicide. There is also a group for adult siblings.
