Healing Hearts for Bereaved Parents HEALING HEARTS for Bereaved Parents is dedicated to providing grief support and services to parents who are suffering as the result of the loss of their child or children. The volunteers at HEALING HEARTS are there to help. They have known the pain that the death of a child brings. They have struggled with and worked on their grief and finally have made peace with that sorrow.
Their purpose is to offer understanding, suggestions for coping, support, friendship, and most of all hope to all bereaved parents. Parents who have lost a child as a result of miscarriage or stillbirth are equally welcome as those who have lost children to illness, accident or violence.
The Compassionate FriendsThe Compassionate Friends (TCF) is an organisation of bereaved parents and their families offering understanding, support and encouragement to others after the death of a child or children.
