Every day, more than 100 children are bereaved of a parent in the UK. Winston’s Wish is the leading childhood bereavement charity in the UK. The death of a parent or sibling is one of the most fundamental losses a child will ever face. At Winston’s Wish, they believe that bereaved children need support to make sense of death and rebuild their lives – and that is why they exist.
A society in which every child can get the help they need when someone close to them dies.
To listen when a child is grieving
To act when a child needs our help
To know what to say when it is time to talk
Open, reflective and responsive
