Bereavement support

Care does not stop after a child or young person dies.

Demelza will continue to provide practical and emotional support for the whole family. Grief is very individual, so Demelza provides both one-to-one counselling and support groups for parents, siblings and other family members.

Our aim is to help families understand their loss and begin to face life, whilst remembering their child.

Families will also receive invitations to Bereavement Remembrance events held by Demelza, including a Snowdrop planting in spring, a Bereaved Family Event in summer and Candlelight event in winter. In some instances we may be able to help plan individual remembrances for families.
