The Compassionate Friends (TCF) is a charitable organisation of bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents dedicated to the support and care of other similarly bereaved family members who have suffered the death of a child or children of any age and from any cause. Many people who have suffered the loss of a child feel a bond with others in the same situation and wish to extend the hand of friendship.

  • local and specialist support groups and one-to-one support,  many of our support groups have moved online and are held via video conferencing during the pandemic 
  • a befriending scheme where the newly bereaved are ‘buddied’ by a volunteer longer-bereaved parent (Grief Companion Scheme)
  • group support via social media in private, well-moderated Facebook groups
  • information leaflets, bereavement support publications and a unique postal library on all aspects of bereavement
