Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals both when a baby or child dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement. Every year we deliver training to around 5000 professionals at the front line of bereavement support.
When a child’s parent or significant loved one dies, their lives change forever. As well as the sadness they feel, they are often left confused and full of fear and anxiety. Grief Encounter helps families address difficult issues such as death and we help make sense of the hurt and confusion. Above all, we aim to help them find ways out of the abyss of grief. Grief Encounter offers a flexible and accessible bereavement service which aims to professionally care and respond to the needs of each service user. We aim to support every family with an individual approach.
The Childhood Bereavement Network (CBN) is the hub for those working with bereaved children, young people and their families across the UK.

RD4U is a website developed by Cruse Bereavement Care's Youth Involvement Project which aims to support young people after the death of someone close to them. We believe that the best way of doing this is to involve young people in planning, developing and delivering services. RD4U means the 'road for you'. Everyone reacts differently to a death and we're not here to tell you how you should be acting or feeling. If someone you know has died you could use our site to find out how others in your situation have coped - read their experiences in the personal section, share your thoughts and feelings on the message board, offer advice to others and look at ideas for coping. The main aim of the site is to let you find your own 'road' to dealing with your loss. If you want a break from all of this, go to the fun zone and play one of our new games.
