For bereaved children, the festive season can be a particularly difficult time of year. Sadly, around 45,000 children and young people are bereaved every year in the UK. For 26 years Winston’s Wish has been helping children, young people and families to rebuild their lives after the death of a parent or sibling, enabling them to face the future with confidence and hope.
The charity provides vital support to children, their families and the professionals who care for them in many ways; via a Freephone National Helpline, in individual and group settings, and with online support and publications. Grief can destroy a child’s future, but with your help, Winston’s Wish can ensure that it doesn’t. To continue with its work, they need to raise £2.5 million every single year to reach the bereaved children that need their support.
“We’re incredibly proud to be able to support Winston’s Wish, the UK’s first childhood bereavement charity, who continue to lead the way in providing specialist support services for children.”
