Winston's Wish (Bereavement Support)

Winston’s Wish, the charity for bereaved children, helps young people re-adjust to life after the death of a parent or sibling. By providing professional assistance before, during and after bereavement they help them to better understand the nature of loss and offer the practical support and guidance that many need in order to cope throughout the grieving process.

Every 22 minutes a child in Britain is bereaved of a parent; this equates to 24,000 new children each year learning to live with a powerful range of confusing and conflicting emotions. Bottled up, these emotions can have damaging consequences in later life for the individual, their family and society as a whole. Winston’s Wish is now recognised as the leading organisation in this field and its pioneering model of family support has been adapted and used by many other organisations throughout the UK and abroad.

Now in its 18th year, Winston’s Wish has a range of services that include a national Helpline for anyone caring for or concerned about a bereaved child. Every year our Helpline supports around 3,500 families and professionals, benefiting an estimated 7,000 children.
